This is accessed from the “Import” button at the bottom of the Members page

MailShot can import a string of contact names and email addresses pasted into the text field on this page. These addresses can be copied from an email header, an email, or other document.

When you paste a string, you will be shown how many contacts were detected, and can scroll through their names and email addresses. Tap “Done” to select which to add.

MailShot will interpret most popular formats broadly similar to this:

contact name <email address>, contact name <email address>, …

  • Separators may be commas, spaces , semicolons and/or carriage returns.
  • Contact names may be surrounded by inverted commas, or quotation marks.
  • For best results, ensure the actual email address is surrounded with < and >, (these may be omitted when the list only contains email addresses, and no contact names)

For tips and tricks for getting strings from PC or Mac, from received email, from Outlook, or from Spreadsheet programs, see this article on the Support Page.
