Print a contact list from the Outlook Express address book

As time passes, you accumulate a potentially huge list of contacts in your Outlook Express address book; after a while, you will end up having more contact information inside your favorite email program than anywhere, and wished you could print it on paper. Well, this is not only possible, as you'll learn in this tutorial, but Outlook Express even gives you the flexibility of printing contacts in one of three ways: print a single contact, print a selection of contacts, or print your entire address book! We will show you how to do all three.

Print a single contact from your Outlook Express address book

First, go to "Tools > Address Book" to launch your contacts in a new window. Outlook Express will automatically select the "Main Identity's Contacts" on the left hand side; in most cases, this is what you want since all uncategorized contacts from your address book will be stored and visible there by default.

Select your main address book contacts

To print a single contact, locate it and click on it; then, you can either click on the "Print" button shown in the toolbar at the top, or go to "File > Print" (or use the Ctrl+P keyboard shortcut). Outlook Express will print on a paper sheet called "Address Book Document", with the name of the contact you selected. Underneath, the page will show all information you have added to the profile of the contact in question.

Tip: if a contact group, or "contact category", is selected when you print, Outlook Express will create a single document that contains the name of that distribution list, and a listing of all its "members" (the contacts from your address book whom you have added to that group).

Print multiple contacts at the same time (several contacts at once)

If you want to print more than one contact from your Outlook Express address book, follow the same steps you do when you want to select multiple files in Windows:

Outlook Express will sent a list of these contacts to your printer, and the printed page will show each contact, one after the after, along with all the information you have added to each contact's profile! 

Print all contacts from your Outlook Express address book

Printing all your Outlook Express contacts is even easier:

...And this is how easily you can print your contact list from the Outlook Express address book. Also remember that any contact on which you right-click and choose "Copy" can then be pasted inside a text editor, like Notepad or Microsoft Word (and that document itself can be reformatted to your liking, and printed!)
