A Quick Update

A Quick Update

Do you use Outlook Express for your main e-mail program? If you do, I’m sure you also use the Address Book feature that comes along with it, right? I mean, it’s the easiest way to store all of your contact information. So, if you don’t use it, you’re really only hurting yourself! (Now, if you’re not sure how to add an entry to the OE Address Book, just go to Tools, Address Book, New, New Contact and fill in the information).

Okay, so once you have your Address Book up and running, it’s probably safe to say that every once in awhile, you have to go in and update an entry. You know, maybe one of your contacts got a new e-mail address or maybe someone moved to a different home address, etc. Whatever the case may be, you have to go in and change the information around. So, what’s the quickest way to do that?

Well, is a double click fast enough for you? Try it with me. Open Outlook Express and go to Tools, Address Book. Find an entry that you need to update and just double click it. Once you do that, the Properties window will pop right up and you can go through the different tabs and change the information as needed. Now, with the old way, you had to open up your Address Book, right click on an entry, choose Properties, etc., etc. But now, there’s no more extra clicking for you. This is, hands down, the easiest way to update your Address Book. Check it out, my friends!
