What’s so special about the Outlook address book?
The Outlook address book is a collection of address books or address lists. You can use the address book to look up and select names, e-mail addresses, and distribution lists when you address messages.
Some tips to get the best out of your Outlook address book
When you enter a name in the “To, Cc or Bcc” columns, the Outlook address book will automatically check its database to find a proper match. If the program finds a match, then the Outlook address book will provide you with the mail id and name of the recipient.
If the program can’t find any matching records from the Outlook address book, a dialog box stating “Check Names” will provide you with a list of names to choose from. Again its invisible search some other Address Book or create a new contact in your address book.
Can’t find the contact details from your system? Go to the “Standard” toolbar” and click on “Address Book”. In the list, select the Address Book that you want to search for the contact.
When you search for a contact, just enter the partial name of the person or “a display as” name or an email alias and the search program will bring up with your contact details that you are searching for.
Well, that was simple, right? With Outlook address book, you’ll be able to access your contacts more quickly, efficiently and that too, at your fingertips. So, why bother searching for a cup of coffee, when it’s already in the table?
