    Hello to all. I am new here.

    I am using an Asus TF101 tablet with Android 4.0.3

    I have the G Mail app and the Google Contacts in the browser. I have a few different "groups" in my contacts list.

    QUESTION:
    I have not been able (if it's possible) to send an e mail from either G Mail or the Google Contacts using the bcc to multiple recipients such as a specific group without knowing all their names by typing the first few letters of their name. Not practical or possible with my brain when 30 or 40 names are involved.
    In G Mail on a computer one simply clicks on the bcc in a new e mail and the contacts list pops up for names selection.
    Is their a way to do this with my tablet?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum

    Unfortunately I don't know of ANY mail client for Android that handles groups. It's a major problem.

    I came up with a work-around:

    Create an e mail, preferably on a computer where it's easier, with all the e mail addresses of a specific group and put them in the body of the e mail. Save the e mail as a "Draft". When you want to send an e mail to that group from the tablet open the draft, copy all the addresses in the body then paste them in the bcc ( or cc or to) address section of a new e mail. You can then delete anyone you want to exclude from that particular e mail.
