Chapter 28. Managing the Windows Address... > Adding and Editing Contact Informati...

Adding and Editing Contact Information

As with most Windows activities, you can choose from several techniques to add a new contact to Address Book:

  • While reading an email message in Outlook Express, you can quickly add the names and email addresses of the sender and any other addressees. From the Tools menu, choose Add Sender to Address Book. The submenu choices enable you to add all the recipients on the To line or individual addressees, if the message is addressed to more than one person. Windows automatically creates a new contact record for each selected address, using the display name from the Address field in the message header. (Microsoft Outlook 2000 and other Address Book–compatible programs work the same way.)

  • To add an email address to your Address Book and make it available for editing immediately, open a message window and double-click any name in any address field—From, To, or Cc. This technique opens a dialog box filled in with the name and email address for the new contact. On the Summary tab, click the Add to Address Book button (see Figure 28.2). Add or edit information as needed—pay special attention to the Name tab, which can easily get mangled. Click OK to save the new record.

    Figure 28.2. Double-click an email address in a message to open this dialog box. Add phone numbers and other details and then click this button to add the new contact to Address Book.
