Sending From The MailShot App.
To create an email from MailShot- tap the group, then select an option from the menu. To hide email addresses for privacy, use “Send email (Bcc:)”. To let all addresses be visible, use “Send email (To:)” (this will allow someone to “Reply All” to the group).
To remove someone from a group for a little while, edit the group and deselect the checkmark next to their address.
To send to several groups at once: tap “Multi”, select your groups, then tap “Send” to open the email compose window.
To always place someone in the “To:” line, whenever sending to “Bcc:” (usually your own address), add the address under “When placing a group in Bcc” on the Mailshot page in the Settings app,
TIP: Your sent emails are accessible in the “Sent” folder of the Mail app. If you cancel and “Save to Drafts”, they will be accessible from the “Drafts” folder of the Mail app.
Add a Photo
You can add photos and attachments to an email, just as you would in the iOS Mail app:
Tap where you wish to add the photo, then release. Select “Insert photo or video” from the black pop-up menu. Or tap the shortcut button above the keyboard on iPad.
TIP You can also share multiple photos directly from Photos. See below.
Add a Document
To add documents from an iCloud drive, Dropbox and others, tap the right arrow again, and select “Add Attachment”.
Sharing Documents From Other Apps
You can share files directly to a MailShot group using this button or, in some cases, a button marked “Share”.
This “Share Extension” can be used to share photos, documents, contacts, map locations, weblinks and many more items directly to your group.
Use the switch to select whether you want to send in Bcc: or To:, then choose a group.
To share to several groups at once, tap “Multi”.
TIP: If you cannot see a MailShot icon in the top row, scroll to the right, and tap “More” . You can also change the order which your extensions appear in, for faster access.
NOTE: If a file is not sharing as expected, try sharing to Mail and see if that works. If so, please let us know from the Support button in the app.
Forward An Email
MailShot is one of very few iOS apps that will allow you to forward email to a group…
- Select a group in the MailShot app
- Tap “Copy to Clipboard”
- Switch to the Mail app
- Paste this group into the address line of your forwarded email. (Tap and hold, then select “Paste”)
Multitasking alongside other apps
(Requires iOS 9 – 10, and iPad Air or Mini 3 or newer )
Swipe from the righthand edge of the screen to show the multitasking window, then swipe down from the top of the screen to change the selected app.

This allows you to address your email very easily by popping up Mailshot, selecting a group and copying it to the clipboard, then pasting it to the address line in Mail.
