Managing Your Contacts

Initially, your Address Book file contains only two folders, one for your personal addresses and one for shared contacts used by all Outlook Express identities. When you add a contact record, it's stored in your personal folder by default. If you don't have that many contacts, this flat organizational structure will probably be just fine. However, if you manage a large number of contacts or use Address Book for various purposes—to keep track of family members, business contacts, and club or church members, for example—you can use folders and groups to keep everything organized.

Tip

If you're the only user of Outlook Express on your computer, and you don't need to organize your contacts into additional subfolders, the Folders and Groups tree in Address Book's left pane just gobbles up space for no good reason. To hide this tree and use the entire window for the address list, uncheck the Folders and Groups option on the View menu.
