Change and edit contacts information in Outlook Express

Outlook Express contacts There are two ways to add people to your Outlook Express address book: manually create a contact or add a new contact from an email received from that person. The amount of information you supply about a new contact is entirely up to you: Outlook Express lets you supply as little as a single piece of information - email address, first name / last name, etc. But this doesn't matter, since you can go back to the address book at any time, and edit a contact's information, as we'll show you how to do in this tutorial. We'll assume that you have at least one existing contact in your address book (otherwise, start by creating one using one of the two methods linked to above).

Tip: you cannot "batch edit" multiple contacts; to change information of members belonging to a distribution list (contact group), you'll need to edit each contact individually.
