You don’t need to type out email addresses from memory or from a written planner when you’re composing new emails. All email systems will let you add contact details that are stored in your account for reference.
When you start typing someone’s name into an an email address field, it will fill automatically with suggestions of email addresses from your full Contacts list.
Gather email addresses
First, you’ll need to gather email addresses from your friends and family. If you’ve never had an email account before, this tends to be a manual task!
You may need to ask around and write the details down for everyone’s email addresses. Next, it’s time to add the Contact details to your email account:
To add Contacts, click the top-right Apps menu (an icon of nine small squares) then Contacts. Click Add to my Contacts, then type in an email address. Alternatively, you may see an Add Contacts icon at the bottom-right of your Contacts page.
Click the top-left Apps menu (an icon of nine small squares) then People. Click New at the top, then fill in the details for the Contact. You can fill in all the boxes, or simply add an email address if you prefer.
