Use the Categories feature in Outlook to organize your Contacts list. For example, you can group your contacts into categories such as Family, Friends, and Business.

1. Select the contacts you want to assign to a category. To select multiple contacts, click the first contact, and then hold down CTRL and click additional contacts.

2. On the Edit menu, click Categories.

3. In the Available categories box, select the check boxes next to the categories you want.

If the category you want isn't available, you can quickly add a new category to the Master Category List. Type the category name in the Item(s) belong to these categories box, and then click Add.

You can quickly view contacts by category. On the View menu, point to Current View, and then click By Category.
