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.

In order to add addresses, you must first have a Personal Address Book. For information on creating one, see the Knowledge Base document ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook 2003 or 2002, how do I create a Personal Address Book?

To add the address of the sender or recipient(s) of a message to your Personal Address Book in Outlook 97, 98, 2000, or 2002, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the mail message.
  2. In the "From:" field, right-click the email address of the sender and select Add to Personal Address Book.
  3. To add the address of a recipient, right-click one of the addresses in the "To:" field and select Add to Personal Address Book.
