Newbie Outlook2003 email Question

Hi,

I have Office 2003 and I have a question about Outlook. Is there a way to attach an incoming email to a contact like you can in ACT! I want to try to avoid making a folder and just attach it to the contact. Thank you!

Create a contact for the sender then look on the activities tab of the contact. You can also assign one or more contacts using View, Options dialog.

Diane,

Thanks so much! But maybe I am confused. Isn't this really just creating a folder to keep all the emails in? I think what you are saying is, if I have 150 contacts and I want to keep 1 email from each contact, I need to create a local folder for each contact. Correct? This is what I was trying to avoid. Maybe I am confused....

Nope. Open a contact who sends you email. Click the Activities tab. Wait a few seconds for the search to complete and you see all the mail that person sent you.
