I want to mention every member of a team, so can I write like "everybody of you"?
No you would say
'every one of you'
You can also use "each (one) of you..."
Remember, no matter which one you use, if using a verb after, it must be in the third person singular.
Each one of you is a valuable member of this team.
Everyone of you is a valuable member of this team.
Also both, for added emphasis:
Each and every one of you...
I think in that case it would have to be written as two words: "every one..."
I'd go for that and the post Mora put would have been my suggestion too.
"all of you" would also work.
You're right. However, the verb would have to be changed to agree with the subject.
All of you is a valuable member of the team.
All of you are valuable members of the team.
(This might be different in BE).
If you want to speak to each team member as an individual every one, or each one of you is probably better.
Darn that space. I know I put in that space between every and one. Where did that space go?
Nope. BE is the same. (Hurrah!)
Separate names with a comma.
