I have been using categories in Microsoft Office (2002 Version) for almost a year now. I have several hundred contacts marked as investors and entrepreneurs. I really need to add all of them to a new “Distribution List” so that I can easily email this list when I need to. (I’ll of course use BCC: so that everyone doesn’t get everyone elses contact info.)
But this is where I stumble. I can use “Advanced Find” to find all the investors and entrepreneurs, but then I don’t know how to add these contacts to a new permanent distribution list all at once.
Is there any way to do this with Office 2002? Do I need to upgrade to the latest version? Or do I need to buy a third party email tool from someone like www.fairlogic.com? (I downloaded a trial version of their software but never activated it.)
I need to hear from my readers–how do you manage all your contacts in lists and easily send emails to large groups? I just don’t want to take hours and hours to add names one at a time to my distribution lists. It’s too painfully slow.
Should I dump Outlook entirely and use a third-party solution for contact management?
