Start typing the email address of the person you want to send mail to. if you only enter a contact name, a list of corresponding email addresses appears in the dropdown. You can enter multiple email addresses by separating them with a comma (,). When the Compose Mail page opens, all email addresses that you entered will have been added to the ‘To’ field.
