The Address Book is completely useless to me if I can't add Contacts to it. There is currently no way to do this and no place to go for instructions.
How to quickly add new contacts from email to Outlook address book?
Can someone please post understandable instructions about how to find and then open my Personal Address Book or the Collected Address Book and then please tell me what the difference is between them? It is VERY non-intuitive.
How To Add Contacts In Gmail [NEW]
Open the Address Book window. Do you have a Directory Pane showing down the left margin with your books listed? If you want to add a contact from an email that you received you need to work from the header of the Message Pane or a message opened in a Tab.
When you view the header of a received message there will be a star to the right of the senders address. If the star is filled with color the contact is already in one of your books.
Keep your contacts up to date in Gmail
Clicking on an unfilled star will add it to the Personal Address book Clicking on a color filled star will open the contact edit dialog box where you can add details to the contact or change the book it is saved in. This is NOT the same star to the left of the message subject line in the Inbox. The two default address books are the Personal and the Collected books.
The Personal book is for contacts that you add and most use this as the main book. The Collected book collects addresses of people that you send mail to. There is something called the Contact Sidebar that is in the Write window.
If yours is not showing when you open a Write window press F9 to toggle it on. From the Contact Sidebar you can add contacts to your email.
How to Add a Contact to Your Outlook.com Address Book
You can double click a contact to add them to an address field. You can drag and drop a contact to an address field.
If you are adding more than one contact to an email you hold the control key down while clicking all the contacts you want and then use one of the Add To: buttons at the bottom of the sidebar. You can also start typing a contact into one of the address fields and Thunderbird will offer suggestions from your address books.
