This wouldn't be necessary if accessing Contacts from Outlook were straight forward
Why not replace the search icon by a Contacts or People icon and functionality? Then allow search from inside mails, contacts or callendar window. This way, it would be easy to access Contacts information and change it without being bothered by mails.
We would not have this problem if we had easy access to contacts' details from Outlook. Microsoft should fire the guy who ruined the user interface. Also, it should have appropriate processes to avoid such stupidities.
When you want to access information of a contact, I get the related mails instead. Disgusting!
Still tortuous to change details of a contact just because it is tortuous to get to see them
Why can't I see the details of a contact without being bothered with the mails related to the contact?
¿Por qué es tan complicado ver todos los detalles de un contacto? ¿Por qué me aparecen los mails cuando quiero ver los detalles de un contacto?
I was annoyed to discover that my real name was displayed with my alias. Why not warning the users about this? I would not have created an alias if I had known this.
