This is a very cool, little-known Outlook trick. Outlook can automatically map the address of one of your Outlook contacts by looking it up on the Maps Web site.

To see a map of a contact's address:

1. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.

2. Click Contacts on the Outlook Shortcuts bar.

3. Double-click the contact whose address you want to locate.

4. Under the address button, click the down arrow, and then click the type of address you want to find on a mapóBusiness, Home, or Other.

5. On the Actions menu, click Display Map of Address. Your Web browser will open up and display a map of the contact's address using the Maps Web site.

Editor's Note: On the Maps Web site, you might need to first specify additional information in order to display the map. If the Web site can't display a map for the address, verify that you have entered the address correctly.
