Hi @oldgit67 

 

First export your contacts from an existing contacts address book

  • Select Export and Comma Separated Values (CSV)
  • Save the exported Contacts CSV File to a local folder or desktop on your device

To import to the TalkTalk Address Book Contacts folder:

  • Select the Address Book app from the header
  • Select the Contacts folder in the folder view side panel
  • Select the Actions on Contacts icon (triple line icon) next to the folder name
  • Select Import from the menu list
  • In the pop-up window
    Select the CSV data format
    Select the Upload button to locate the saved Contacts CSV File
    Select the blue Import button

Or you can export as a vCard and Import as a vCard.

Hi oldgit67 

 

What you're looking for is:

  • Automatically collect contacts in the folder "Collected addresses" while sending
  • Automatically collect contacts in the folder "Collected addresses" while reading

You'll find these options via the Main Settings Menu (triple line icon top right on the header)

  • Settings
  • Mail in the side panel
  • Under Common

Hi oldgit67 

 

The one-off option is there.

 

Just select the sender's name from the mail message detailed view and you'll get a pop-up and top left of that is an Add to address book link.

 

Review and add to the fields as you require and select the Save button.
