How to Create a Contact from an E-mail on Your Android Tablet
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to build up the Contacts list on your Android tablet is to create a contact from an e-mail message. Follow these general steps when you receive a message from someone not already in your Android tablet address list:
Touch either the contact’s name in the From field or the picture by the contact’s name at the top of the message.
The contact’s name or picture is really a menu, as shown by the little lower-right corner triangle. That’s your clue that a menu exists.
Choose whether to create a contact or add the e-mail address to an existing contact.
For an existing contact: Scroll through the list to choose the contact. The e-mail address is added to that contact.
For a new contact: Fill in the rest of the contact’s information on the New Contact screen. Building the contact works just like creating a contact from scratch, though the e-mail address and potentially the person’s name is already available.
Touch the OK, Done, or Save button to create the contact.
If you accidentally create a contact when you already have that contact, you can join the two.
