Envelopes in Outlook


4-Step Computer Security Upgrade

Learn to encrypt your files, secure your computer when using public Wi-Fi, enable two-factor authentication, and use good passwords.

One of Outlook’s most astonishing omissions–which is in no way remedied in version 2007–is the lack of a way to go directly from a contact to a printable envelope. My workaround is pretty good, although not as pretty as I would like. I just create a folder called ‘Envelopes’ inside my My Documents/Business Files directory and organize envelopes by lastname, firstname.doc. I then attach those to my contacts using the attach files feature.

It works fairly well, although I still think it is ridiculous that Microsoft has not yet seen fit to give us a direct link from contacts to envelopes.

    I agree that is is a major omission but I found an Outlook add-in that does exactly that. It prints one or many contacts directly to envelopes.
