43.3 Personal Address Books

You can create, edit, save, and rename multiple address books for your personal use, and you can share these address books with other users. For more information, see Displaying Quick Info.

Personal address books are marked with a Personal address book icon icon in the Address Book list.

You can add and delete names and address information for any contact (person, company, or resource) you want in your personal address books. You can also create your own information properties (fields). When you create a personal address book, a book icon is added to the Address Book list. You can expand and collapse open books by clicking + and -.

When you create multiple address books, you can include the same name and address in several books. If the entry is copied from an address book and you edit the entry’s information in one book, it is updated in all books.

Personal address books list addresses according to your preferences. You can also create personal groups. If you save a list of people as a group, you only need to type the group name in the To box to send the entire group a message. For more information, see Organizing Addresses in Groups.
