Contacts: How do not show the fax number




I work with Outlook 2003. When I do a new e-mail, I click th To button and
go to my contact. I found 2 same name. One with e-mail adress and the
other with fax number.

How do not show the fax number ?

Outlook considers fax numbers to be valid electronic addresses, since there
are many client and server based components that can use such addresses.

One method to hide fax numbers from the address book is to prefix the fax
number with one or more letters (maybe B for business fax, H for home, O for
other). If the fax number begins with a letter, Outlook won't show it in the
address book.

There are a couple of utilities that can help you hide fax numbers from the
address book. See and (Hide Fax Numbers).

Another way to avoid having fax numbers appear in the address book is simply
not to enter data in the fax fields. Put fax numbers in some other
(non-phone) fields.
