Add Contacts Quickly

If you receive an e-mail message from a person whom you want to add to your Outlook contact list, here's a quick way to do it.

Step by Step

  1. Open the e-mail message that contains the name you want to add to your contact list.
  2. In the From box, right-click the name you want to make into a contact, and then click Add to Contacts on the Shortcut menu.

This creates a new contact with that person's name and e-mail address already filled in. You can also fill in any additional information you have about that person, such as a phone or fax number, and then save it in your Contacts folder for easy access.
