Hide Fax Numbers component

If your contacts include the FAX numbers you may have some inconvenience in selecting the mail recipient when the message is created. The Microsoft Outlook will show both kinds of contacts in the list: the contacts with email addresses and the contacts with the fax numbers. Moreover, if one contact has the email address as well as the fax number, the name of the contact will be duplicated, which may confuse. But this is not going to happen if you use the Hide Fax Numbers component. With help of this Outlook add-in the fax numbers will be excluded from the list of contacts and will not show up when you create a new message. But at the same time, the information will be stored in the contacts and you will not lose any of the fax numbers.

The use of this Outlook add-in allows to:

  • hide contacts, that have a fax number, when a new message is created;
  • restore displaying of contacts with fax numbers;
  • select exceptions, to which the program operations will be not applied.
