Previously I wrote on how to export their Windows Live contacts, on my blog techlikes.com. In order to supplement that tutorial, I’m writing this article on how to send email to all, multiple Windows Live Messenger contacts. There are three methods to accomplish this.
You can also send emails by right-clicking the contact and click on Send E-mail(see below). You can also send email, by just hovering your mouse over the contact. But for Facebook contacts, this option will not be available.
Windows Live Messenger gets installed with your Windows Live Essentials 2011. If you want to install Windows Live Messenger only, here is the download link.

After installing it and made some contacts, you can e-mail them directly in this way.
2. Click on Actions → Send → Send an email message.
A pop-up window will open with all your contacts listed in it. Type your contact name in “Search Contacts” box. You can also select or type multiple contacts or friends. Finally, click on OK.
This will open a message window using your default e- mail client like Outlook or Windows Live Mail. Type your message and click on Send.
This method uses the Windows Live Mail. If you don’t have Windows Live Mail, you can install from this link below.

After installing, you can login into it with your Windows Live Id.
1. Click on Contacts in the left frame.
2. All your contacts will be listed in the middle frame.
3. Click on the contacts you want to email.
4. Then, click the Email button.
This will open a pop-up window with all your contacts in the To text-box in your default e-mail client.
Type your email with Subject etc and click on Send.
Note: But, if you’ve too many contacts Windows Live Mail may warn you that it’s not possible to send the mail. Also, it’s best to use a Hotmail Id as your Windows Live Id. In this case, there is no other alternative, but copy the contacts in the To list to Notepad and send it in small number of groups, several times.
The first method is preferred, if you want to send email to a single contact. The direct method is an easy way of sending mail to contacts, if the numbers of contacts are less. But, if the contacts are more, it’s better to send using indirect method, even though it fails, if the contacts are in huge number.
