How to create a mailing list in thunderbird and send email to the list of email addresses

Updated on September 1, 2017

I recently wanted to create a mailing list in Thunderbird and send out a confirmation email for 40 odd participants registered for an event. I know it’s not going to be easy to add all email addresses in the To: field, so I found out a better way of doing it and here it’s.

Thunderbird email client supports ‘Mailing List’ feature by default and all you need to do is, just follow the below steps.

Step 1: Launch Thunderbird

Step 2: Click on Tools > Address Book or open it with a shortcut Ctrl+Shift+B.

  1. Thanks for those explanations! Question: is it possible to use a list of email addresses copied from an existing message (To: field) to create a new list?
