Update Contacts

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. My customers and vendors seem to move around a lot, and I have a devil of a time keeping my Outlook contacts up to date. Any ideas?

A. There’s a free program, Plaxo, you can automatically e-mail to everyone in your address book, inviting them to update all their contact information. Plaxo also will send you a toolbar that makes it easy to initiate such an invitation to all your current contacts (see screenshot). To find out more, go to www.plaxo.com .
