Creating a mailing list from your current Address Book can be as simple as dragging the addresses into a list. In this tip, we'll cover that simple process, as well as what to do if many of the e-mail addresses are not already in your Address Book.
If you get a new list of e-mail addresses that don't already exist in your Address Book, you can still create a list using the method above. However, you must first get the list into Thunderbird. You do that by opening and saving the list in Word, then importing the list to Thunderbird. It will be a little tricky at first, especially if you aren't used to using tables in Word, but after a couple of times, you will be able to fly through the steps. Here they are:
If you get a list in "comma-delimited" format (each address separated by a comma), such as class lists from TheHub, copy and paste the list into Word (Mac) or Excel (PC).
The list may export with several lines of addresses, and several addresses per line, each separated by a comma. The steps below will help you get them all separated and each address on its own line in Column A. If the list is already all in one column, with only one address per cell, then skip to Step 6.
With your completed list, you can now send messages to this group of people any time you want. If you ever need to add or remove individual addresses, simply double click to open the list, and delete addresses, or go to the end and add new addresses to the list.
