Benefits of creating groups

The user only needs to enter the name of the contact group at the address field. Even typing the full name of the contact group is not necessary.

The contact groups will reduce their job while typing the e-mail addresses frequently.
Mailing to contact groups
The steps to create the contact groups have been mentioned above. After creating the contact groups, the user should open the new e-mail window for composing the mail. After composing the message, the user should type the first few letters of the contact group at the 'To' address field. The auto completion functionality will help the user by listing the groups starting with the letters. The user can choose the suitable group from the list.
Use 'Ctrl' + 'Shift' + 'C' keys as shortcut option for launching the Windows Live Contact window quickly.
