Getting a list of email addresses in Excel into Outlook

This little trick is handy if you have a list of email addresses in Excel, and you want to use that list to send everyone an email using Outlook. It’s really nothing more than copy and paste!

In a new Outlook message, I Paste them into the To field. They’ll start off in a column like you see here:


But in a matter of seconds, they’ll resolve to the normal semicolon-delimited format, and you’re ready to send:


It definitely beats trying to retype them by hand, or reformat them in Notepad…
