Part 14. Getting Started with Outlook > Creating an Address Book Contact

Creating an Address Book Contact

Click the down arrow next to the New button on Outlook's Standard toolbar and select Contact from the menu that appears.

An untitled contact window appears. Type the contact's name in the Full Name text box; the window's title bar is updated to reflect the name you typed.

Click the down arrow next to the File As field and choose how you want the contact name to appear (last name first or vice versa).

In the Phone Numbers area, type any phone numbers you have for the contact in the Business, Home, Business Fax, and Mobile fields.

INTRODUCTION

Using Outlook's Address Book, you can store information about all your business and personal contacts, much like you would with a paper-based address book. After you enter all your contacts—that is, the names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of your friends, family members, and business contacts—into Outlook's Address Book, you can use this information to send email, create mailing lists, and more.


TIP

Deleting a Contact

To delete a contact, click the Contacts button in the Outlook bar to switch to Contacts view, click the contact to select it, and then click the Delete button on the Contacts toolbar.


Type the contact's email address in the E-mail field.

When you finish entering information about the contact, click the Save and Close button on the Contact window's toolbar.

Click Contacts on the Outlook bar to see a list of your current contacts.

Your list of contacts appears. To add more contacts, repeat the steps in this task.
