Creating other Contacts folders

Outlook 2007
In addition to providing its default Contacts folder, Outlook allows you to use multiple contacts folders to organize your contacts easily.

For example, you might use a shared contacts folder jointly with members of your workgroup for business contacts and keep your personal contacts in a separate folder. Or you might prefer to keep contact information you use infrequently in a separate folder to reduce the clutter in your main Contacts folder.

To create a new folder for storing contacts, follow these steps:

   1.   Choose File -> New -> Folder.... Alternatively, you can right-click the folder list and choose New Folder to open the Create New Folder dialog box:

Create New Folder

   2.   In the Name box, type a name for the folder.

   3.   Select Contact Items in the Folder Contains drop-down list.

Contact Items

   4.   In the Select Where To Place The Folder list, select the location for the new folder.

   5.   Click OK.

When you create a new contacts folder using this method, Outlook sets up the folder using default properties for permissions, rules, description, forms, and views.
