Chapter 11. Gmail > The Contacts List

11.4. The Contacts List

Contacts are nothing more than a stored list of email addresses. The cool thing about them is that they let you fill in the To field of a message with just a click or two—and without having to remember whether your brother's e-address is bro@workplace.com or bro@workplace.net.

For example, instead of typing out president@whitehouse.gov every time you get the urge to tell the President how you feel, you can call up your Contacts list by heading to the left side of the Gmail window and then clicking the Contacts link. When you do so, Gmail presents a list of names and e-addresses of people you frequently send messages to (click All Contacts to see the entire list of people you've added to your email address book, as shown in Figure 11-26). Turn on the checkbox next to the entry for "President," and then click Compose to open a pre-addressed message form all ready for you to fill in with your latest thoughts.
