Webmail: How To Create a Group


This article describes how to create a group in the Webmail address book.


Webmail provides a way to create custom email groups via the address book. This allows users to better manage emailing large groups of contacts on a frequent basis. Instead of having to add many contacts for each email over and over again, you can add just the group.

NOTE: If you are an Exchange user, visit outlook.uoregon.edu to read your email. If you don't know whether you use Exchange, see How do I know if my email uses Exchange or IMAP?  

How to create a group in Webmail

  1. Log in to webmail.uoregon.edu with DuckID credentials.
  2. Click on "Contacts" on the left side of screen.
  3. Once in the Address Book, click the ‘’ symbol in the top left next to "Groups" and click "Add group".
  4. You will be presented with a box that says "Create new group". Type in the name of your new group and hit 'Save'.

Modifying a group in Webmail

  • To add existing email addresses from your Contacts, drag the contact to the newly created group from your Personal Addresses.
  • To remove a contact from a group, right-click on the contact you wish to remove and select "Delete". When asked "Do you really want to delete selected contact(s)?" click "Delete". This will remove the contact from only the group it has been added to, it will not delete the contact in general.
  • To add new addresses that are not in your Personal Addresses, click the Group in the left pane and then click on the Create icon towards the top right corner, then fill in information on the right.

Using groups in Webmail

To use your new group, type in the group name in the "To" box or select it from your address book on the left side when you are composing a message. The box should automatically populate with all of the email addresses that are tied to the group.
