Using CompuServe’s Address Book

CompuServe includes a feature called the Address Book that lets you store frequently used e-mail addresses. To access the Address Book, click the Mail Center button and select the Address Book tab. The Address Book, shown in Fig. 6.6, appears.

Using CompuServe’s Address Book

As you can see, the Address Book is a simple list of names and e-mail ad-dresses. You can add names to the list, delete names from the list, and change existing names. Better yet, you can use the Address Book to quickly add recipients to your e-mail messages.

To add a name to the Address Book, click the Add Entry button, confirm that you’re adding an Individual Address, and when the Define Address Book Entry dialog box appears, enter a name and CompuServe User ID (see Fig. 6.7). If you’re adding the address of a non-CompuServe recipient, pull down the Address type list and select from the types listed: Internet, America Online, Prodigy, MCI Mail, SprintMail, Advantis, AT&T Mail 400, AT&T Easy Link, Fax, Microsoft Network, WOW!, or other. You can also enter comments about this recipient. Click OK when you’re done, and the name and address are automatically added to your list.

To delete a name, select the name and click the Delete button. To edit a name and address, select the name and click the Open button. When the Change an Address Book Entry dialog bQx appears, make any necessary changes.
When you create an e-mail message, you can easily look up a name in the Address Book and add it to the list of recipients for your message. When you’re creating a new message, click the Recipients button, and then the Address Book button. The Select Recipients dialog box appears, complete with a list of all the entries in your Address Book. Click the name(s) you want to add, and then click OK when you’re done.

You can also create mailing lists—collections of recipients—in your Address Book. Just select Group Mailing List in the Define Address Type dialog box, and create a list of names/addresses in the Define Mailing List window. Give the list a name and click OK, and the list name appears in your Address Book. When you select the list name as a recipient, every addressee in the list receives an identical e-mail.
