Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Create a Personal Address Card

  1. Choose New from the Card menu.

    Address Manager displays a template for a new card in the scrolling pane. Each line in the template card represents a field specified in the vCard specification. All fields are optional, although you should fill in at least the Name field.

  2. Type the relevant information for the new address card in the scrolling pane.

    If you are unsure as to the appropriate format of information such as phone numbers, and the like, print out an existing card and use it as a guide.

  3. When you are satisfied with the details you have entered, choose Save As from the Card menu.

    Address Manager displays the Save As dialog box.

  4. Type a name for the new card file and click Save.

    The file name should contain the name of the person to which the card relates. Address Manager saves the file under the file name that you specified in the Addresses folder.

    Tip -

    For address cards (which conform to the vCard standard), some operating systems such as Windows recognize the .vcf file extension. If you intend mailing your address cards to users of such systems, you may want to use this file-naming convention.

  5. (Optional) Verify your new personal address card by searching for it with Personal Cards selected in the Search menu.

    Address Manager finds and displays the personal address card you created.
