This is where you create and manage MailShot groups.
Each group is followed by a number indicating its size (or two numbers if only some are selected. See The Members Page.)
To Create a Group: Tap “+”.
To Edit a group: Tap the group icon to the right of the group name.
To Send an email tap the group name.
To Send to multiple groups, tap “Multi”.See Sending email with MailShot for how to forward an email, or send a document.
To Search For A Contact Or Email Address: tap the magnifying glass at the bottom of the page
To Rename a Group: Select it, then tap “Rename Group”.
To Duplicate a group: select it, then tap “Duplicate Group”.
To Delete a Group: select it, then “Delete Group”. You can also swipe from right to left across the name of a group you want to remove (the standard iOS “delete” shortcut_.
To Split a group into smaller groups: Select it, then “Split <100”. (NOTE: This option only appears when you have at least 50 contacts in your group.)
To Return to the title page tap “Home” on the menu bar.
NOTE: A red group contains an address that MailShot can no longer find in your address book

It would really help if you could copy a group, rename it as a new group and then edit it. That way you could creat subgroups from one large group without having to start at the beginning each time. I have some groups that include contacts that I don’t want included for some purposes, but there is no way to delete them for one mailing without having to re-input for another.
UPDATE: you can do this easily:
Just select a group, tap “More” then tap “Duplicate”
I would like to share my email group with a coworker. Is there a way to share or export group to another MailShot user?
Yes there is an easy way to do this, please check this article on our Support Page https://solubleapps.com/mailshot-support/#SHARING
I belong to a club of 50 members plus 6 committee. To save 50 names being shown before the message is shown I send the main message to the chairman and then cc to committee and bcc to rest of club. Can I do this with your app? The only way I can see is to send a separate message to each group
That is a bit more elaborate than most of our users need, but if you need such a specific pattern, here’s how to do it as one email…
First create separate groups for the Cc and Bcc.
To send, select the To group, and tap “Copy to clipboard” then select the Bcc group and tap “Send Email (Bcc)”. Tap the Cc line of the email and paste there (from the clipboard), then tap the To line and add the chairman.
Hi! How do I sync my iPhone and iPad so they have the same groups and when changes occur?
Data is are shared automatically through iCloud. (just make sure that you are signed in to the same iCloud account on both devices.)
If you still have any problem, please drop me a line from the Support button on BOTH devices, so I can see how they are both configured. Cheers.
Can I get a printed copy of these instructions????
