Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Assigning a category to a contact, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.

When I'm all done I can click OK and now I can start assigning this category.…I can right-click a contact, go down to Categorize, and assign them to the Personal category.…Now here's how you can send an email to all these people.…To see everybody that's in a category, the first thing I'm going to go do is…change to List view.…Once I'm in a list view, I can change the sort option.…I do that by going to the VIEW ribbon tab.…
