About contact management
FirstClass lets you store personal contact information, such as the email address, phone number, and street address of a friend. Contacts provide a quick way to address messages to both people who aren't registered on your server and people who are, but whom you address, say, by nickname.
We recommend that you create a conference instead of a mail list, to reduce Mailbox clutter, if all recipients would have access to your conference.
Contacts and mail lists can be in your Contacts folder, where only you will see them, or in public contact databases, where others can see and contribute to them. You, your administrator, and other users can create contact databases and share them with other users.
When you add contacts and mail lists, they are added to your personal view of the Directory. In the case of a contact database, you must place a link to it in your Contacts folder, to see the contact database entries in your view of the Directory.
Contacts aren't added to the Directory if your administrator didn't give you access to the contact management feature. If you don't have the contact management feature, you can still create contacts purely for reference.
Your Contacts folder
All FirstClass users have personal Contacts folders on their Desktops. Your Contacts folder contains contacts and mail lists that you have added for your own use.
