Alphabetical Filtering

If you know the name of the contact that you are looking for, you can click on a letter in your contacts list to filter it so that it only shows contacts or contact groups starting with that letter. Individual contacts are organized by their last name by default unless one has not been entered in the contact information.


 

 

Search Bar

The second way that you can search for a contact through webmail is through the search bar. First, click on Contacts and then  enter a search parameter into the search bar at the top of the page. This will narrow down your search results to show only contacts which match your search criteria. Results will populate after you push the ENTER key on your keyboard or click the search icon.
