Hey, one of my clients got an Acer Iconia A500 tablet and I set it up for them with their Gmail account using the Gmail app.
Everything works great and even their contacts automatically sync'd to the device.

The problem I need help with is how do you send an email to more than one contact without having to type each email address in manually?
It's probably something really simple but I couldn't figure it out.

The only way I could send an email to a contact was by going into the Contacts app, finding the contact and then touching the envelope icon would open up a new email, in the Gmail app, with their email address entered.
I can't see a way of adding one or more contacts to a new email from within the new email window.

Anyone with one of these care to have a go and let me know how you do it.
Is it the same on all Android tablets?

In the gmail app, just start typing the name of the contact and it will auto-complete then start typing the next contact etc until you have added them all.

Thanks but tried that and it only brings up email addresses for those you have already sent an email to.

Anybody?
My client is off overseas on the weekend, for 3 months, so would like to let them know if it is possible before they go.
