Java Desktop System Email and Calendar User Guide

Introduction to Contacts

Email and Calendar enables you to store information about your contacts in contacts folders. For each contact, you can store the name, job title, telephone numbers, email addresses, and so on. You can also create contact lists. You can use a contact list to send a message to many of your contacts at one time.

Figure 8–1 shows a typical contacts window.

Email and Calendar also enables you to use an LDAP server for your contact information. For more information about how to configure an LDAP server, see To Add an LDAP Server.
