You can also address messages to one or more contacts from within the Contacts pane. The Contacts tab is divided into three panes: groups, contacts list, and contact details.

How do I add a contact?
You can add contacts from the Contacts tab or directly from your email.
To add a contact in the Contacts tab:

- Select Create from the top toolbar.

To add a contact from your email:
- Select an email from the person that you would like to add.
- In the email details, click on the email address in the header.
- From the options, select Add to address book.
- The email will be automatically added to your address book.
Once the contact is created, you can display the contact and then click the Groups tab to assign the contact to one or more groups. Toggle on the groups where you want to add this contact. All contacts belong to the Contacts group by default, but they can be added to as many other groups as you’d like.
How do I select multiple contacts?
- Access the contact list.
- Click the Select button at the top of the contact list.
- Use the checkbox that appears beside each contact to select or unselect.

- Move the contacts into a group for future use, or select Compose from the sidebar to start an email to the selected contacts.
How do I search for contacts?
The basic search located at the top of the contact list uses display name, email, first name, last name and all fields. If you want to do an advanced search,
- Click Contacts.
- Select Search from the toolbar.

- Click Search and the contacts that match your search criteria display in the Contacts list pane.
