How can I put Email Contacts into the Favorites Menu?

Here's a cool trick on how to use the Favorites list to send email:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Favorites menu and click the Add to Favorites command.

In the Add Favorite dialog box, type the person's name For example, we'll type Bob Dobbs in the Name text box Click OK.

Click the Favorites menu, right click on the Bob Dobbs entry and click Properties.

In the Bob Dobbs Properties dialog box, remove the information in the URL text box andr replace it with the person's email address In this example, we'll type in mailto:[email protected] Click OK.

Click on the Favorites menu again and click on the link you created It opens an email message and automatically puts in the person's email address in the To: text box.

Want to have the link on your desktop? Click the Favorites menu, right click on the link and point to Send to Click on Desktop Now the email link appears on the desktop You can even take a picture of that person and if you format it correctly, change the icon so that the person's picture is the icon! Just click on Grandma if you want to send her mail :)
