Default How do I *type* an email address when composing new email...

Please Login to Remove!

How do I just type in an email address without going to the contacts when composing a new email?

I just want to send an email to an address I know but every time I select 'Compose Email' I get sent to the Contact list.

Sorry for asking such a basic question. Couldn't find it in the search...

Scroll to the top of the address book, there's an Use-Once option..

instead of typing a, just start typing the email address: ie jsmi, then click on use once.. this will start the email address with jsmi.

I think the above sentence makes sense.

Or type "Use" followed by Enter.

While in the address book hold the ALT key while wheeling. it jumps one page at a time and is pretty fast.
