Now go and open new file, it will be in EXCEL, adjust columns and print out.
Basically you use same steps to sort as an Outlook Express user; however, wording is slightly different:
>>CLICK on Communicator >>CLICK on Address Book You will have more columns and you can even add more columns to sort on by clicking side arrows at bottom of your address book. You can also use VIEW. I did not see an Export Function in Netscape.
I used a friend's AOL account to check out AOL's email functions and found email addresses were already sorted in ascending order. I did not find a way to sort or export. However you can edit and delete.
More then an E-Mail program, yet you can sort by CLICKING on EDIT and then CLICK SORT. You can sort your people up to three different ways, either in ascending or descending order. To EXPORT, go to FILE, CLICK Data Exchange, CLICK Export and follow wizard instructions.
Organizing Mass E-Mails:
If you find that you need to send same mail message to several people all time, such as a team at work, or a committee you're on, you can put them in a Group (Outlook Express, AOL, and ACT!) or List (Netscape) so you don't have to look for or type their E-Mail address all time.
Create a group in Outlook Express:
>>Open your E-Mail program >>CLICK on TOOLS >>CLICK on Address Book >>CLICK on NEW and CLICK NEW GROUP Name your Group (this is what you will type into TO: when you want to send them all same E-Mail). Now just follow instructions on your screen and start adding people you want to be in this group.
AOL, ACT!, and Netscape programs have similar steps for creating groups. If you are using one of these programs, check out their HELP feature if you need help creating groups.
I have found that most E-Mail programs contain above basic functions for organizing your E-Mail addresses; however, it would be next to impossible to try and include them all here. You can discover what your E-Mail program can do by checking out their HELP Section and you just might stumble across some neat "stuff." ~~~~~ Janet L.
