Adding public contacts to your e-mail address book

When you send a mail to someone within the company, his or her name shows up in the contacts list. For external people this doesn’t happen automatically. However, follow these steps to make it easier to find these contacts when writing a new mail:

Adding public contacts to your e-mail address book

  1. In Outlook, click on the Contacts icon in the bottom bar.
  2. Right click on the contacts group you want to add and click Properties.

    The properties window appears.
  3. Click on the Outlook Address Book tab and select Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book.
  4. Click Apply and OK.

Finding the new e-mail contacts

You can now find the new public contacts when writing a new mail, as described below:

  1. Type a name of a contact in the To…-box.
  2. Click Check Names in the ribbon.
    The Check Names dialog appears.
  3. Find the right contact and select it. Click OK to confirm.
    The name is now inserted into the sender field.

That’s the way to do it. You can happily start mailing!
