LSUMail: Set Up Personal Contact Groups in Outlook 2011 (Mac)

This article describes the steps to set up personal Contact Groups in Outlook 2011 Mac.  

A contact group is a list of e-mail addresses referenced under a single name. It acts as a mailing list. You can then address an e-mail to the Contact group and the message will be sent to all group members.

PLEASE NOTE: This will save the contact group(s) to the local machine and not be available to the user if they use OWA away from this Mac. See this article for detailed information.
