I received an email with dozens of people in the cc: field. I would like to convert this list of addresses to a contact group in Gmail. Is there a simple way of doing this without writing a script or entering each person into the group from the "Other Contacts" list?

  1. Open the Gmail conversation/message.
  2. At the right of the recipients fields, click the "Show details" dropdown button.
  3. Copy the list of addresses.
  4. Go to the Google / Gmail contacts manager.
  5. If the Google Contacts Preview UI is shown, change to the old Contacts UI.
  6. Create a new group.
  7. Click the "Add to " group name button.
  8. Paste the list of addresses.
  9. Click the Add button.

For an alternate method, see https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/74913/88163

  • I tried this now and had a problem with the new interface. I had to switch to the old contact list to import the addresses in bulk. – drescherjm Oct 3 '18 at 17:48
