Chapter 28. Managing the Windows Address... > Storing Information in Address Book

Storing Information in Address Book

Most Windows users never think twice about the Windows Address Book. On the rare occasions when they have to deal with it, they use it for one function only: storing email addresses. Well, okay, that is Address Book's primary task—but this surprisingly powerful small program also has the capability to store a broad range of information about people and places.

In essence, Address Book manages a flat-file database of information, in which each contact record stores details for a single person or company. You can gather two or more contacts into a group, which enables you to send an email message to everyone in the group by entering a single address. You also can organize contacts into folders, keeping family members in a Family folder, business contacts in a Work folder, and so on.
