Hi Ron,

I’m going to paste what Jaws has from the speech history as I tab through my wife’s contact.

This will at least give you an idea of the fields.

You can fill in or skip any fields you like.

I think you can also add fields in each section by cliking on the button like for email and bring up other choices.

I’ll x out the phone number etc.

I think if you put their call letters in the display as field, that might work.

The last field is a notes field that doesn’t help with the auto fill function.

Hello, once again, from Ron Kolesar.

For my example on what I need help with, I’m going to compare windows live mail to the newer outlook mail package.

Now in WLM’s contacts, I was able to tab across and I had the following fields:

First Name, Middle Name, Last Name and then nickname.

If I were to place a say call sign for my ham radio friends in the nickname field, when I wanted to write a letter to that firend, I could start typing in their call sign and the e-mail address would appear within the to field.

  1. How can I do this within the outlook mail package?
  2. 2. Again within in WLM, you had with one contact to switch from personal to business to have two contact information in one contact, instead of having to creat two contacts for the same person.
  3. How can I also do this within Outlook?
  4. Last but not least.
  5. I have some friends with multiple phone numbers and a cell phone number and multiple e-mail addresses.
  6. How can I enter in this information as well?
  7. Very Thankfully Yours,
  8. Ron Kolesar
