    Adding message receipients to Outlook 2016 contacts


    Hello:

    Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically, by default, add the people I send e-mails to using Outlook 2016 into the contacts list? I know that some other e-mail clients have a way to do this, but I have not discovered it yet in Outlook 2016.

    Thanks



    :)

  2. 6233 How to set default receipient for SMS

    I bought Nokia 6233 because my previous Nokia phones allow me to set a default receipient so that whenever I create an SMS message to my most frequent receipient, I do not need to go through the trouble of adding the contacts.

    I hope this is possible with Nokia 6233. Please advise!

    6233 How to set default receipient for SMS

    Yes you can: when creating a new SMS, Nokia 6233 prompts you on the last used addresses, then on the whole contacts' list.

    Have fun!

    Adding message receipients to Outlook 2016 contacts

    Here's one way to add mail recipients to contacts in Outlook 2016:

    1.) Select Sent Items folder in Navigation pane

    2.) Select an email you have sent

    3.) In message pane, mouse over the recipient (bring pointer on top of name / email) to open options prompt, click the downwards arrowhead bottom right to open Contact card:

    Notice that at least my Outlook 2016 is a bit sensitive, sometimes mouse over is enough, sometimes I have to click the recipient to open the prompt

    4.) Click Add:

    5.) Fill in contact details, click Save:

    I appreciate your reply, Kari, but what I am looking for is a way to automatically add every new To: and CC: email address to the contacts list every time that I send a message, without me having to take any other action other than simply send. This capability exists in a number of other e-mail clients that I have used over the years. I would be surprised if did not exist in Outlook 2016.
