Contact name is relatively easy. If you’re already in the Print 1099 screen just click on the Address ID you have selected for the 1099.

  • This will open the Company Address Setup screen.
  • Scroll down to the Contact line and input the appropriate Name or Title in the available space.

Now that you are in the Company Address Setup screen scan to the right of the Address ID and you will see a small globe. This represents internet information.

  • Click on the globe
  • The internet information setup screen will appear.
  • The select information for: should default in as Company.
  • Confirm the Address ID you want to modify.
  • In the E-mail Address information area, select To: and input the e-mail address you want to assign.
    • This will trigger Exchange to try and Validate the email address, just click Cancel
