Sorry but I am new to electrum  Wink

Is possible to send from one specific address to multiple adresses with different amounts.

I know it is possible to send from any address (electrum decides for you) to different adresses with different amounts.

like that:

1iauhencoioashjfco... ,5
1oriurhsaofmoiasje.... ,3

My wallet runs on linux and should be one of the latest versions.

Is this possible throught the gui? or will I have to use commands/is it even possible with commands?
If I register a adress in my electrum contacts, can I send to the contact name (f.e. "user365") or do I have to type the address ?

It is possible from the GUI... but the catch is that the total value that you want to send PLUS the fee, must be stored in the address that you want to send from. It cannot be spread across multiple receiving addresses.

If you look at the "Addresses" tab (if you cannot see "Addresses", then use the menu item "Wallet -> Addresses")... you can right click on the address you want to send from and select "Spend From"...

As you can see in this example, while I have a balance of over 11.106 BTC, if I wanted to send from mnsp6mr6P42A3CfmEhNc35h1LwgQ5X7Hsj, I can only send around 9.9 BTC.

You can then enter multiple lines in the "Pay To" box:

Remember: You will only be able to send up to the amount of UTXOs (minus the required fee) in the chosen address. So in my example, I would need to have at least 0.039 + fee in my selected address to be able to send to the three addresses.

If you don't have enough coins in the address you want to use, you'll need to consolidate enough coins into the address you want to use first.
