Managing Contacts in Windows Mail
Contacts in Windows Mail can be managed in two different ways. Windows Mail uses the ‘Contacts’ folder in order to manage the email contacts efficiently. The Contacts folder has tools for adding more personal details, assigning pictures, etc. Also you can configure Windows Mail in such a way that it will automatically add the person’s name and email address from every mail you respond to.
Add/Remove Contacts in Windows Mail
The best way to add a contact is to use an email you received from the person you wish to add. Right click on this message and select ‘Add sender to contacts’. A window arises titled 'Add a Contact' and the email field filled by the person’s email. Alternatively you can select ‘Contacts’ and select ‘New Contact’. Fill the form with the necessary details and click ‘OK’. To remove a contact, select ‘Contacts’ and click on the name of the contact you want to remove. Click ‘Delete’ located on the top bar.
At times you might end up with errors while trying to add or remove contacts. The main issue is the disappearance of 'Add Contact' in options. To resolve this issue, click ‘Tools’ and open ‘Windows Contacts’. Right click on the blank area in the right panel. Now click on ‘Properties’ and select ‘Customize’ tab. Set the folder type to 'Contacts' and click on ‘OK’. You will now be able to add contacts as before.
