3: Group Members

This is where you view and edit the members of a group. You can get here by tapping (i) next to any group on the Groups page (or from the “More” menu when you select a group)

Each member appears as a name and an email address. If an address appears in red, then MailShot has detected that this email address is no longer contained in your address book and may need to be updated.

Ordering of contacts

Contacts will automatically be sorted into alphabetical order, based on their surname.

The MailShot page of the Settings app contains option switches to allow you to choose to see contact names as lastname, firstname (“Show Surname First”) to match the default sort order , or to perform sorting on the entire name (“Sort On Full Name”) instead of on the surname.

To add a single contact, tap “+”  on the bottom menu bar, or the bottom line of the table (see next section)

To add multiple contacts at once tap “Import” (see next section)

To edit a contact, tap its line. (This also gives you an easy way o change between addresses if your contact has multiple addresses.)

To delete a contact tap “Edit” at the top right of the page, then tap the “-” button that appears alongside the contact you want to remove. Tap “Delete” to confirm. Tap “Done” to leave edit mode.

TIP: You can also use the standard iOS shortcut to delete a contact from your group, just as you can in other apps. Swipe from light to left across the contact you want to remove, then confirm its deletion with a tap of the red button which appears.

A series of checkmarks run up the right hand side of the page. To temporarily exclude an address from the group, deselect its checkmark. This is a great way to swap members of a team in and out as needed.

The ‘None’ and ‘All’ buttons at the bottom of the screen select, or deselect, all the checkmarks at once.


When your changes are complete, tap “UPDATE” to write the changes into your default address book and return to the Groups page.

NOTE: The group contact is not created in your address book until you do this.
