Use the right email address for that contact group in Gmail

If you’re like me you have a multitude of email addresses, some you use for personal items, some for work, some for specific groups, and, well, you get the picture. You also most likely have put them into different contact groups to make emailing them easier – I’ve done just that but the trick that eludes many is how to set the email address for a given contact group. Here’s how.

  1. Head over to your contact screen – its available from the Mail drop down

  2. Select the contact you want to edit (I selected my own contact entry)Select Contact to Edit
  3. Select the contract group you want to adjust the email address for and select the appropriate one.

The changes you make are automatically saved and you’ve just made your friend or associate happy by making sure the emails you send to that group go to the right email address.
