We didn’t have instant messaging apps like Facebook and Whatsapp back then, so we made-do with what we were provided. In those days, hotmail was in vogue. Many users used it to send emails to their friends and family. But with time, Gmail gained popularity and superseded hotmail’s dominant place as the best mailing client on the web. The  Gmail group mailing list is one of the many useful features of the enormously popular mailing platform. So, how does it come in handy?

It enables users to send an email to numerous contacts in a matter of seconds, saving valuable time and effort in the process.
