Contacts in Outlook 2010
In some situation you want to send your vCard in every e-mail. This lets recipients enter the information in their address book quickly and without errors.
The address book is usually created when you create a Personal Folders profile, but only one address book can be defined for the profile. Fortunately you can easily create additional address books out of the profile for your own needs.
Sharing Contact Groups can be a great timesaver when multiple people need to continuously e-mail the same groups of individuals (for more details see Sharing Contact Groups). You can easily import a Contact Group that was e-mailed to you as an attachment.
This option controls which address book you see when you open the Address Book (via clicking Ctrl+Shift+B) and when you click the To, Cc, or Bcc buttons when composing e-mails.
