    Contacts Archive (XP)

    Since Outlook does not archive Contacts (Why not?), is there any way to automatically backup the Contacts folder?

    Thanks, I know that panel says it does, but when I try to have it archive my Contacts, even when setting the "archive older than" date to yesterday, I get nothing in my archive.pst file. Does it work for you? Am Idoing something wrong? All the help files I read about Outlook say that Contacts is not archived.

    No - it doesn't work for me.
    I think the problem lies in how you interpret the term "archive". This would normally apply to data that had a date attribute so that could could decide to archive items based on their age. Contacts do not have this attribute, therefore they can not be archived.

    However, in your original post you also refer to "backup" which is not the same thing as "archive" - maybe this will help:
