    Outlook 2007 Cannot add address book to drop down list

    The drop down list (of address books) is empty. When I attempt to add an address book, the check box is "greyed out". I have quite a few entries in the "My Contacts" list but none show in the drop down list of address books.

    I am currently running outlook as the administrator. It has not helped.

    This may help:

    However, if the box is dimmed and unavailable, you'll need to go to Tools->Email Accounts and choose View or change existing directories or address book. If the Outlook Address Book is not listed, add it and then close and restart Outlook. If it is listed, then remove it, close, and then restart Outlook and repeat these steps to add it.
