You can capture and organize information about people by creating contacts. Contacts are like electronic cards that store a person's information. A contact can be as basic as a name and email address, or include more information like a street address, multiple phone numbers, and a photo.
Once you've saved someone as a contact, you can type the first few letters of their name into an email, and Outlook will fill in their email address for you. Or with a few clicks, you can call that person without ever having to look up their phone number.
Tip To create a contact from anywhere in Outlook, press Ctrl+Shift+C.
Tip Want to add another contact from the same company? Just click the little down arrow next to Save & New, and then click Contact from the Same Company.
You can save more than one phone number, email address, or mailing address for someone. For example:
If you have a picture of the person saved on your computer (or in some other location), you can use it in their contact information.
