1.If you write an email and click "+" to add several addresse, after the some addition, the screen is saturated and the search field gets hidden. After each addition, you basically have to swipe to the right and start over again for the second addresse and so on.

This is not convenient at all, the added addresse should take less space on the screen and eventually they should "scroll up"

You can select (tap) multiple addresses from the contact list (and deselect as required) and then [select] these at once to populate your e-mail "to" field.

Hi jgr, this is not really the answer I was looking for.

If you try to select multiple addresse, after the 2nd, 3rd of 4th contact it doesn't work anymore. The keyboard hides the "search" field and the address field of a contact is not complete: Image and video hosting by TinyPic In this picture I had the keyboard already removed by swipping it down.

I had a different procedure in mind:

  1. "New email".

  2. Tap (+) next to To field.

  3. In the contact list opening tap the first letter and tap the contacts listed and required.

  4. Tap another letter and the contacts listed and required.

  5. Repeat until all contacts required are highlighted.

.6. Go up and click [x selected].

Yes that is possible but I have too many contacts to do it this way, it will take a long time to be able to tap the next letter.

@jgr not sure I want this solution, it works but with 500 contacts I want to use the search field, not spending hours scrolling. Try it with the search field and give me your feedback for at least 5 emails for example please.
