Create a contact – Outlook 2011 (MAC)
Here are the two most common ways to add contacts in Outlook 2011 for Mac:
- Add a contact from a mail message. Select a mail message in Outlook Mail and choose Message→Sender→Add to Contacts from the menu bar.
- Add a contact while using the Contacts. Click the Contact or click New→Contact on the Home tab of the Ribbon in Contacts.
A dialog appears with the General tab selected. Fill in the name, phone number(s), e-mail address(es), home address, and other personal details about the contact. The title of the dialog will be the name of your contact. If you have more information about a contact, click the Organization, Details, Notes, or Certificates tabs to add those details.
If you have Microsoft Messenger or Microsoft Communicator service running, when a contact is available for chat, the IM (Instant Message) button on the Home tab of the Ribbon becomes available.
Right-click a contact in the contacts list to open a contextual menu that contains many useful options, such as Categorize or Forward as vCard.
If you need directions to a contact’s house or office, select the contact in a contact list and then click the Map button on the Home tab of the Ribbon to display a map of the address listed for the contact. (Of course, you need to have the address completely filled in for your contact for this to work!) Typically the map opens in Bing Maps. The Map button also appears on the Contact tab of the Ribbon when a contact is open in its own window.
Note: Contacts added in Outlook 2011 will not be visible in OWA.
