How to Create an Email List in the Horde Webmail Client

Horde is one of the three webmail clients available to subscribers of InMotion Hosting accounts. Horde gives you the option to create multiple address books, but it’s not immediately obvious on how to create email lists that allow you to send a single email to multiple people. The following tutorial walks you through the steps of creating an email list in the Horde client.

Steps to create Email list

  1. Login to webmail

    Login to the Horde Webmail client

  2. Add email contacts

    Before you can create the list, all the emails that you want to include in the list must be added to an address book in Horde. Click on Address book to open the drop-down menu. Click on New Contact in order to add contacts to an address book.

  3. Select the Address book in the drop-down menu

    When you have completed adding the addresses to your Address book, click on Address Book again, and then click on Address Book in the drop down menu.

  4. click on menu item

    You will see a menu list about the contacts and a drop down menu labeled “to a Contact list”. Click on this drop down menu.

  5. Add new contact list to address book

    In the drop down menu you’ll see an option that says “Create a new contact list in:” and you’ll be able to select an address book. If you have multiple address books, then you’ll see them listed here. Make sure you choose the one with all of your contacts. Select your address book, if necessary.

  6. Add contacts to list clicking on check boxes

    The menu above the listed users will now show the Address Book name. Click on check boxes for the users that you want in the list.

  7. Name the new email list

    Once you have finished selecting the users in your list, click on the ADD button in the menu line (next to the address book name). This will open up a pop-up window that says, “The page at says: Please name the contact list:”. Type in a name for your contact list in the blank, then click on OK to create it.

  8. Select list when composing email

    That completes the creation of your email list! When the list is created, you will be able to call it up by typing the name of the list in the To: field of the email.

  • Thanks for providing that information. Next question: When using and sending a Contact List, for example “Management Team”, I assume I am the only one that sees the term Management Team. How do I send an email so my receipients will also see the term  “Management Team” instead of the individual email addresses?


    • I’m glad we could help you with that information.

      I am not aware of a method for controlling how emails are displayed on the recipients’ computers. I believe this is dependent upon the mail client they are using to read the email and the settings they have configured.
