Using Address Books

An address book is where contact information is stored. By default, a Contacts and an Emailed Contacts address book are created in Address Book. You can create additional address books and share them with others and you can also create group contact lists.

Types of address books

Two types of address books are supported in Webmail Plus.

  • Personal address books, which consist of contacts that you maintain.
    • Emailed Contacts is populated when you send an email to an address not already in one of your address books.
    • Contacts is populated by you adding your own contacts and contact groups.
  • Global Address List is tied to WMU's enterprise director and cannot be edited by you.
