To make this list easier to read and sort able by email address, copy this list and paste it into a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel.
Using Excel, sort the list by the email column, and those patients without an email will sort to the bottom of the list. Click the Sort Ascending button and choose the option Expand the Selection.
