Creating a Contact

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


Forget using paper Address books, because Microsoft Outlook does that for you.  A Contact is a record or entry in the Microsoft Outlook Address Book.  

Creating a Contact

1.  Point to the "New" button on the standard toolbar and click on the down arrow to the right of it.  Click Contact from the drop-down menu.

2.  Figure 1.1 will be shown.

3.  The Outlook Contact dialog box (Figure 1.1) is probably the most complicated in all of the Outlook dialogs.  First, simply enter the information requested into the text boxes.

4.  In the large text box, enter any notes on this contact.

5.  That's all there is to it!  If you want to add more details, use the Details, Activities, Certificates, or All Fields tabs.  

What you have set up is the most commonly set up information for a contact.  The other tabs are not required.
