I have created a group for my little league baseball team. Most of the parents have a home and a work email and would like to receive my communications to both. I don't see a way to do this except for creating two different contacts for each person. (I have both emails for each parent in my contacts under the same name but MacMail only uses the one that is "checked"). I'm sure I'm missing something. Can anyone enlighten me, please?

Thanks, Jeff

    As far as I know each contact in a Group can have only on email address in it's distribution list.

    Edit>Edit Distribution List

    Rather than two different contacts for why not create a second Group. Place the contacts with the secondary email addresses in it and then Edit the Distribution List to use the secondary email addresses.

    When you send out your email, include both Groups.
