Look Up People Mentioned in E-Mail Messages in Ms OutLook
Here is a common situation: You are reading a long mail thread in the Microsoft Office Outlook preview pane. Because it is a long thread, people have been added and removed from the thread as the e-mail conversation has been passed along. You see the name of a person whom you want to send e-mail to, call, or chat with. But the name is not on the active To or Cc line of the e-mail message, so you have no hyperlinked contact information.
In that case, you can select the full name, right-click, and then click Who Is. If the name appears in your address book, the Outlook Properties window for that person will appear. From there, you can easily find an e-mail address or phone number, or add the person to your instant messaging contacts by clicking Actions.
