Lesson 1. How to Set Up Your Address Book

Lesson 1. How to Set Up Your Address Book

Time This lesson takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Goals To get all names, addresses, phone numbers, and other contact info for your friends and family into your Mac's Address Book, so you can retrieve them anytime in just seconds.


When you first considered getting a computer, I'm sure you probably thought about sending email, getting on the Internet, etc., and I'll bet you also thought about having all your software “work together,” right? Right. Believe it or not, one of the cornerstones of making everything work together is to set up your Address Book (and by that I mean entering the name, address, phone number, and other contact info for your friends, relatives, companies you do business with, etc.). Luckily, there's an application that comes with Mac OS X Tiger called (surprisingly enough) Address Book. It does a wonderful job of managing all your addresses, and best of all, it shares this information with other software applications that you'll be using to simplify and organize your life (well, as far as your computing life goes, anyway). Now, don't worry if there seems to be a lot of steps to set up your Address Book—it's really simple and only takes a few minutes (unless, of course, you have hundreds of friends, in which case it'll take longer, but at least you'll have the consolation of knowing that you're obviously very popular).
