Windows 7: Add columns to "Send an Email"

Add columns to "Send an Email"

When I'm composing a new email I click on TO and the select contact box appears. It only has two columns; Name and Email Address. Is there a way to add an additional column? I'd love to view my contacts by the Company / Work option. I can easily find my contacts by the company they work for but have a much harder time trying to locate them by their name given I have over 1000 contacts.

Thanks, Airpix

Use the search box at the top to search for anything you remember entering about the contact. For example "gmail" returns a list of email addresses that are "@gmail.com".

I am afraid there is no easy way, given the fact that you have over 1000 contacts.

You can't " add " a column, not to my knowledge.
But, you can edit the contact info in this way .....
1. Assuming you have them listed with First name first. ( If you use Last name first setup, then step # 3 and 4 below will be reversed, i.e. Last name box with Company name, First name box with contact's full name).
2. Open contact list > on each contact, click Edit this contact > click Contact
3. in the First name box, enter the company name with a dash or comma at the end
4. in the Last name box, enter the contact's full name
5. click Save when done.

If you do that to all the contacts, then when you click open the conact list, you will see the Compnay names first followed by the contact's full name in your contact list.
The trouble is.... you have over 1000 contacts.

That is a good solution and it looks like it may be the only one. I think I'll give that a try.

It has to work, except you have to do it 1000 times.....

Please post back the result.

If the method is ok with you, please click the " Mark this thread as sloved " button near the top right of your thread.
