Your Contact List is a list of co-workers, family, and friends with whom you communicate most often. When you first install Microsoft® Office Communicator 2007 R2, you must build your Contact List.

Search for someone

Type a person’s name or e-mail address in the Search box.

Add a person or distribution group to your Contact List

Type the person or distribution group’s name in the Search box, and then drag the name from the Search Results box to the Contact List.

 

Add a contact outside your company

To add a public instant messenger (IM) contact from AOL, Yahoo Messenger, MSN® Messenger, or Windows LiveTM Messenger Service, or a federated contact (a contact whose company is federated with your company), type the person’s e-mail address in the Search box, and then drag the name from the Search Results box to the Contact List. (To add a public IM contact, your organization must be configured for public IM connectivity.  Contact your system administrator for more information.)

View a contact’s Contact Card

Click the contact’s Presence button.

Create a custom group

In the Contact List, right-click a group name, select Create New Group, type a name for the group, and then press ENTER. To add contacts to the group, drag them from an existing group or from the Search Results box.
