Create a folder for contacts in Outlook Express

Another feature supported by Outlook Express that makes managing your address book contacts a lot easier is the ability to create contact groups, or distribution lists, but also to create folders to organize people in your contact list! Especially as your address book grows over the years, and you have an active "email social life", using a folder to store together related contacts can be useful. Unlike contact groups, which are virtual groups that only contain "references" to contacts, contact folders in the Outlook Express address book allow you to truly isolate some contacts from others. Let's create a folder in address book.

Add a folder in the Outlook Express address book

Follow these simple steps to create your first contact folder:

And this is how you create a contact folder in the Outlook Express address book!

Caution: once you have copied a contact from one portion of the address book to a folder, for example, they "become" two separate contacts. This means that unless you delete the original contact from its location, you'll have a duplicate. And if you update one of the copies, the other will not be updated - so, to avoid, redundant or conflicting contact information, we recommend that you keep only a single copy of each person in your Outlook Express address book.
