Contacts (Address Book)
Your Contacts area is your personal address book that travels with your FirstClass account. You do not need to add the FirstClass e-mail addresses of Glenbard employees or students to your Contacts. This area is for outside mail addresses, or for creating Mail Lists.

1. Adding a Contact to your Contacts
1. Open your Contacts by double-clicking the Contacts icon on your FirstClass Desktop.

2. Click the New button to create a new contact.

3. Enter the name of your new contact. This will allow you to type the name in the future, without having to type the person's entire e-mail address (like you would for a regular Glenbard FirstClass user).

7. Now that the contact has been added, you can type the person's name when addressing a new mail message (instead of typing the entire e-mail address). As you add contacts, they will appear in your Contacts list.

3. Enter the NAME of your mail list. You will type this name in the To: field when creating new messages to everyone on this list.

4. If you have already added the contact to your address book, you need only type the name in and choose from the directory as you would an employee! If the contact is an employee or student, type the name and it will be added from the FirstClass Directory.

5. If the e-mail address is not in your Contacts, type the entire e-mail address into the list area.

If you wish, you can add any combination of Glenbard employees and students, non-employees from your Contact Database, and e-mail addresses to any personal mail list.

2. A New Contact window will open with the e-mail address (and name) filled in. Edit as needed.

6. Changing the Contacts View

By default, the Contacts view is a list. The list can be sorted by name, e-mail address, phone, etc. Be aware that sorting by name sorts by the first letter of the first name (or of the mail list name).

Views can be changed by clicking the View by List button or the View by Index Card button.
