Error when sending a distribution list email in Apple Mail (Genesis)

Issue:  You are receiving the following error, or something similar,  when attempting to send an email to multiple recipients from a Genesis created email list. 




Genesis, by default,  is setup to create the distribution list for Outlook instead of Apple Mail. 

Outlook   uses an email separator of a semi colon (;) while Apple Mail   uses an email separator of a comma (,). This causes email addresses separated by a semi colon in Apple mail to appear as one long run-on email address instead of separate email addresses.




Please complete the following steps to change the Email delimiter to a comma:


Please Note: You will only need to complete this once. 


Step 1: Open Genesis

Open Genesis and Log in 


Step 2: Locate the Red Lock Icon 

Click on the Red Lock Icon  in the upper right hand corner. 


Step 3: Locate Email Delimiter in My Preferences 

  • Under My Preferences Find the Email Delimiter section (see image below) 
  • Place a comma (,) in the box next to email delimiter.
  • Click Accept



Step 4: Finishing Up

Once this is completed, please recreate your Distribution email list in Genesis and attempt to recreate your email.
