New Contact

  • Click the New Contact button in the top left corner.

Enter Information

  • Enter any contact information you have and would like to add.

Any information you add will save automatically.

Gmail automatically adds addresses to your Contacts list each time you use the Reply, Reply to all, or Forward functions to send mail to addresses that don't already exist in your Contacts list. Each time you mark a message as 'Not Spam,' your Contacts list is also automatically updated so that future messages from that sender are received in your inbox. If these addresses don't appear immediately, try waiting a few minutes or signing out of your account and signing back in.


  • You have successfully added a contact!
