Default Very Simple Question

I'm a new user - don't assume I know anything.

In the online Help, everything I try to learn about contacts - adding,
finding, etc., the Help always begins with "In contacts,..."

I've tried for 5 months now to figure out how in the world you get "In
Contacts"

There is no menu item or button anywhere that says "Contacts".

Every time I send a message I look at a sticky note and type the email
address in, because I cannot figure out how to get "In Contacts".

Can someone please Help!!!

Hi RPh,

Every time I send a message I look at a sticky note and type the email
address in, because I cannot figure out how to get "In Contacts".


The only way to get the email adresses of your contacts is to click on the
"To" button which open the Outlook Address book:

Always mention your version of Outlook when you post.

The pane down the left side of the Outlook window is the Navigation Pane. You
can see your folders there. The default view of the Navigation Pane is the
Mail view. It will show you only folders that contain mail items. Therefore,
your Contacts fodler won't show. At the bottom of the Navigation Pane are a
number of buttons. The third button is the COntacts View button. Click that
or press Ctrl+3 to see all folders containg Contact items. To be "in
COntacts", click the Contacts folder in the Navigation Pane.

You can also see the Contacts folder, along with all your other folders, if
you click the Folder List button or press Ctrl+6.

You can learn some basics on Microsoft's outlook home page. Type Microsoft
Outlook Home Page into your web searcher. There are free demonstrations,
mini training sessions etc there.
