This chapter continues the discussion on the techniques for working with each of the specific types of information that can be stored in Microsoft Outlook. As explained in Chapter 25, "Getting Started Using Outlook" the information in Outlook is contained within folders, each of which stores a specific type of item. The previous chapter covered the Inbox and other mail folders, as well as the Calendar folder. In this chapter, you'll learn how to work with the Contacts folder, which stores information on your business and personal contacts; the Tasks folder, which lets you manage personal or group projects; the Journal folder, which you can use to record events; and the Notes folder, which allows you to keep track of miscellaneous bits of free-form information. You'll also learn how to use Outlook to access and manage files on local or network disks, and to open Internet sites.
The instructions given in this chapter assume that you have opened the appropriate Outlook folder (using any of the techniques given in Chapter 25). For example, the discussion on creating and editing contact information assumes that you have opened the Contacts folder. Otherwise, some of the menu commands or toolbar buttons referenced might not be available.
