Fast-forward Contact Information via Outlook

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. A colleague frequently asks me to forward information about a business associate that I have stored in my Outlook contact file. Is there an easy way to do that?

A. Sure. Let’s say my friend Mickey Mouse wants my contact data on Donald Duck. I check my Outlook contact file and see I have the abbreviated listing at right.

To see my more detailed Donald Duck listing, I simply double-click on the abbreviated one, evoking the screen below.

To send Mickey the whole Donald file, simply click on Forward in the toolbar or press Ctrl-F, which instantly opens a new e-mail message that already contains Donald’s contact information. Then address the e-mail to Mickey and click on Send .
