How to quickly add a contact in Gmail, Outlook, and Apple Mail

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, tricks, guides, and advice on how to get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.

We get it — we all get a shitload of emails. Newsletters, work emails, NSFW love letters… it’s easy to let things slip by you and get lost.

One way to make sure your favorite newsletter doesn’t end up in your secondary inboxes is to add the sender to your contacts. Here’s how you can make this happen in Gmail, Outlook, and Apple Mail.

Gmail

When you receive an email from someone who you wish to add to your contacts, you can do this completely within the message.

Once opened, you just need to move your cursor to the top of the email and over the sender. A pop-up menu should appear, with an option to “Add to Contacts.” Click it.
