OE6 Multiple Addressing

by nassok / November 16, 2008 10:21 AM PST

I am using OE6. I have a friend we'll Joe. He has several e-mail addresses. He has an address for home, one for work, and one for the club he belongs to. I want to send a message to him using all of his addresses. I created a contact for him and added all of his addresses.
Now for the question: How do I send a single message to all of Joe's addresses at one time without adding numerous contacts for Joe, each having it's own address?

Never found OE6 to be able to do that.

See if you can make a GROUP called Joe and in that group add all the addresses.

Not sure I understand.

Whether I have an address book entry or not, (a Contact entry), I would create the email, and in the To: box enter his first email address, then in subsequent CC boxes enter the other email addresses.

That means he gets the same email, several times.

What am I missing?

Ease and Efficiency

It's just a matter of ease and efficiency. It takes more time and is more prone to omitting or duplicating addresses when they are inserted one at a time. True, it works. I've been doing it that way for a couple of years, but the address list has grown and now there are several "Joe"s with muliple addresses. It seems like such a simple function, one contact, multiple addresses.

I thought I may be overlooking something in OE, but I guess not.
I'll try Bob's approach and make Groups for the Joe's in my address book.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
