Tip of the Week

Do you find it frustrating that you can´t get at your contacts through the address book in Outlook? There is a way to do this.

Select Services from the Tools menu and click the Add button. Select Outlook Address Book and click OK (You´ll see a message telling that you´ll have to restart Outlook). Click OK and log out of outlook and then restart outlook.

Activate the folder list (if it´s not already showing), by selecting Folder List from the View menu. Right click on your contacts folder and select Properties. Click the tab called Outlook Address Book and check the box which says ´Show this folder as an e-mail address book.

That´s it - your contacts can now be used in the same way as any other email address.
