The tools on this page work with Outlook Contacts and allow you to share your contacts online and get automatic updates and corrections.
Note that Outlook’s Social Connector provider for LinkedIn downloads current contact data for others who are in your LinkedIn connections. It won’t update contacts in your Contact folder but adds them to the a special contact folder used only by LinkedIn.
If you have an Exchange mailbox, the social connector will update your contacts with information in the GAL. See Help! My Contacts are being updated for more information.
Several other kinds of tools related to contacts are listed on their own pages:
- Telephony Tools — including utilities to copy contacts to mobile phones and to use contacts with Caller ID
- Print Labels and Envelopes for Contacts
- Start a Letter from an Outlook Contact
