There is one thing I forgot to tell you that I do. Whenever I contact someone via email I add them to my contact list in MS Outlook. What is nice about Outlook is that I can have folders for all different sorts of categories and I can write a detailed note so that I can remember why I saved that person’s email address. This note is visible when I bring up the contact. I don’t have to click around to find it. Below are two examples showing two completely different types of entries. I drafted fake ones so that you can see exactly what I would see. I didn’t want to have to black out the contact information.
I have a folder system set up that makes sense to me so that I can find anyone that I have corresponded with in the past.
