How to use a phonecard to call Contacts via Outlook.
Posted on 2003-03-24
I am new to using Outlook ( I have MS Office XP)
I wish to use Outlook to dial the phone for me.
I have entered a list of contacts phone numbers.
I have configured a calling card ( mine was not on the list).
My modom and phone work ok. I can make a call from the
contact list, but I do not know how to tell Outlook to use
my calling card and then call the contact.
There may also be a confusion factor regarding area code.
My area code is 360 ... some 360 calls are local and I only
dial the 7 digit phone number and do not want to use the phone
card. . Some of my contacts have a 360 area code, but it is a
long distance call so I want to use the calling card and
include the 360 area code for the contact call.
So my question is how can I select a contact in Outlook and
then have Outlook first use the calling card and then dial
the contact's area code and phone number?
