This tutorial will show you how to quickly add contacts, and all of their info, to your Address Book from directly within Mail.
- When you hover your mouse cursor over an address (or phone number) contained in an email message, that address will become ‘outlined’ with a dotted line and a small arrow will appear. Note: the address/phone number can be anywhere in the email – it doesn’t have to be part of the signature. Mail will recognize an address anywhere inside the message.
- Click that arrow, and select Create New Contact… from the drop-down list. If this is someone already in your Address Book, select Add to Existing Contact instead.
- A window will pop up with all of the info pre-populated. Make sure it’s all correct and in the right spots – feel free to add to it if you want, and then click Add to Address Book.
- Now launch your Address Book, and that contact will be there. That’s it!
