Smart Groups
Authored by: msadesign on Feb 22, '09 05:02:49AM

Michael,

Why not just make a group called 'Family'? then, in Mail, in the 'To' field, simply type 'Family' and all of the email addresses spring right on over. Very clean. I use project numbers and do this for all my client contacts.

Smart Groups
Authored by: robleach on Oct 30, '09 10:26:09AM

I agree. Using smart groups is probably the tool to solve that issue. Generally, there are usually ways to do what you want to do that you may not be familiar with. The nice thing is that once you learn it for address book, you'll learn it for other apps at the same time because most everything is designed using the same organizational and functional concepts. However, I agree, more export options would be nice. I'd like to generate a tab-delimited file. I've done this before, but using some perl hacking. However, one tip to discover more hidden "export" options is to hit print, which allows you to "export" to PDF. The format is somewhat customizable.
