    Microsoft Outlook 2007 default Inbox & how to add a sender to Contacts

    My friend uses Outlook 2007 at work

    She would like to know how to:

    Have Outlook open to her Inbox
    --- Right now I believe it opens in Messages view from what she tells me
    --- She just wants the list of emails that she needs to work with
    --- When she clicks on Inbox, the Inbox View doesn't need any changes

    Add a sender to her Contacts
    --- Right now she is manually adding a sender into Contacts

    Since I don't use Microsoft Outlook, I've tried to look up the answers but I haven't seen any simple answers to a simple default setting or procedure
    --- Most searches point to creating, changing or customizing explanations

    It would probably be easier if your friend registered and posted, 3rd hand messages tend to "get lost in translation".

    cheers, Paul

    If she has the Reading pane enabled right click on the send and select "Add to Outlook contacts" in the context menu.

    For Inbox on startup go to Tools, Options, Other, General, Advanced Options, General Settings, Startup in this folder, Browse; select Inbox then OK three times.

    Paul I would be very glad to have her register and post what she needs to know
    --- What I didn't mention was that she had a list of 8 other items that needed to be done and I went to the office today to take care of them but wanted everything done within 15 minutes
    --- That is nothing new, I see that all the time
    With some of my friends I have even brought up windowssecrets.com and created a shortcut for them
    --- No joy on any of them yet
    In my experience too many computer users claim they don't have the time to take care of what needs to be taken care
