ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook 97, 98, 2000, 2002, or 2003, or Exchange, how do I add new names to my Personal Address Book?
Note: UITS recommends that you use the Outlook address book (which is created automatically from information in your Contacts folder) instead of a Personal Address Book. The contacts will be located on the server and accessible from any Outlook client as well as Outlook Web App, whereas a Personal Address Book is only available from the hard drive of the computer on which you create it.
Adding to your Personal Address Book
- From the
Address Book.... In the
Select Nameswindow, click the
- In the
New Entrywindow, select the type of email address you will be adding (probably
Internet Mail Address).
- In the "Put this entry" section, if you select
In theand then
Personal Address Book, the address will be used for any message you're currently composing and added to the list of addresses in your Personal Address Book. If you do not want the address added to your Personal Address Book, select
In this message only. Click
- In the following
New Internet Mail Address Propertieswindow, you will find boxes for "Display Name:" and "Email address:". Fill these in appropriately.
- Leave the box
Always send messages in Microsoft Exchange rich text formatunchecked, unless you know the recipient's mail program can handle Rich Text Format.
- If you are currently composing a message, select one of the three
buttons to indicate into which field to insert the address:
Bcc.... If you simply click the
OKbutton, the address will be added to the "To..." field by default. Once one of these buttons is selected, you will return to the mail message being composed.
