I sync Google mail và contacts onlớn a couple iOS devices via Microsoft Exchange.

How can I send an email to lớn a google group from iOS? Neither the built in mail/contact apps have sầu any reference to my groups, & I cannot acces them via the website browser (Smartphone version), nor the official email phầm mềm (which seems to be a resigned web interface).

Unfortunately, there"s not a way of doing it with the native sầu iOS app. Try using the Gmail ứng dụng (which I personally prefer). If not, there"s this little workaround: http://red66.com/2009/07/how-to-send-group-emails-from-your-iphone/

The gist of the workaround is lớn make one contact for the group & add a comma separated menu of emails to lớn the singular email field for the "group contact"

This doesn"t allow you khổng lồ leverage arbitrary groups and does require some manual thiết đặt, but once that"s done you can gmail limited group sizes from iOS without needing a computer.

I use Google Chrome on iOS.

Go to google.com/contacts và choose "Request Desktop Site" from the top right icon (three horizontal lines).

Select your group from the left and clichồng the empty square above sầu the các mục lớn select all members. It will then open a new message in Gmail to all the recipients.

Actually it is possible, I just went into lớn my sent mail where I"ve emailed 34 people from my desktop, I clicked forward tin nhắn, which will display all of the emails, I selected all, copied. Went khổng lồ contacts on my iPad mini, created a name called grouped furnituremaisak.coms for example, clicked on gmail, & pasted all 34 email addresses, click done. Go khổng lồ tin nhắn phầm mềm in táo furnituremaisak.com os Máy tính bảng iPad, cliông xã compose, clichồng plus sign, select name in contacts where group emails were added, và cliông xã send once email is ready. It sent. I know it did because I received 13 out of office replies. I did get a message that said invalid tin nhắn, skết thúc anyway? I selected skết thúc & it sent khổng lồ everyone


I run a danh mục (upwards of 300 names) & have sầu been stymied by this as well when needing khổng lồ sover an gmail on the run ("Hey--we"re still playing disc today...")

My work around is to save sầu a draft letter (from the web app) with the BCC filled in with my group members. I just leave the letter sitting in "Drafts". Then when I need lớn send a quiông xã gmail using my iPhone, I use that draft, & change the body & subject.

drawbacks: 1) Have sầu to rethành viên lớn make a new draft next time I"m on a a desktop. 2) The names are not dynamic, so all changes to the group are not reflected in the draft BCC (additions or deletions khổng lồ the group)

Hope this is resolved sooner than later!

On iOS, the Google Chrome method above sầu doesn"t work if the Group is too large because the URL is too long. (My group is 46 emails.)

I found that the best method is lớn simply create a draft email on my desktop và then write & sover from my phone.


I just discovered I could go to lớn https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inboxOn my iPad within Safari to lớn get lớn a clone of my desktop PC Gmail tiện ích. I can compose an tin nhắn và select one of my Groups lớn skết thúc it.

The Gmail phầm mềm from the app store does not have this feature. The cumbersome workarounds above sầu are not needed.
