I have some contacts that have two email addresses and want group emails to go to both of them. Is there a way to setup one contact so that group emails will go to two different email addresses, or will I just have to create another contact for them?

You can change the main email address of a contact to contain multiple addresses.

Example: person1@domain.com>, <person2@domain.com

Create a Group (look under Contacts). Create 2 contacts for the 2 addresses, and add them both to the group. When emailing, rather than emailing the contact, email to the group.

That's what I was trying to avoid, but I guess I probably have to do just that. – Lance Roberts Sep 28 '10 at 20:27

It would be easiest to set up another contact with the second mail address. By default the email will only be sent to one of the contact mail addresses.
