You will find several options in the following sections.

Creating a group contacts

You can use contact folders to organize groups of contacts. Create a new folder in Contacts, name it, and move or copy specific contacts. Your contact folders will be listed in the Navigation Pane (Navigation Pane: The column on the left side of the Outlook window that includes panes such as Shortcuts or Mail and the shortcuts or folders within each pane. Click a folder to show the items in the folder.) under My Contacts.

You can also create distribution lists to group contacts. A message sent to a distribution list goes to all recipients included in the distribution list. For more information, see Create and work with a distribution list.

In Office Outlook 2007, each of your contacts is also displayed as an Electronic Business Card (Electronic Business Card: A view of specific information about a contact, in a format similar to a paper-based business card, that can be inserted into messages.). Any information that you add to a contact is automatically made to the corresponding Electronic Business Card, and vice versa.
