    Multiple contact lists (Ofc XP)

    Both at work and home, I have had to re-set up Outlook. Each time I've had to do this, it creates a new " Contacts" list. When I click on the Address book from the top toolbar, I have to tell it which contact list to use. They are all named Contact list.

    1) How can I get rid of the blank contact list lists?

    2) When I click on the "to" button for new mail, it each time says that the contact list can't be displayed bec. it's been moved, deleted or I don't have permissions.

    Any help on these two items?

    Kz
    The 'classic way' to do it is to select Tools > E-Mail Accounts ...
    and select the View or change existing directories or address books

    Often this will not be enough.
    The following is made easier if you first right-click on the 'real' contacts folder, select propertiers and name it something else
    Then Tools > Address Book
    Then from the address book window
    Tools > Options
    The screen should generate an "aha" moment <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    Select the real contact list to use.

    I've done that and it works correctly, but how do I get rid of the extra contact lists? Is there a way to do that?

    There is a 'remove' button in the Tools > Address Book > Tools > Options window
    If only one file shows up I doubt you can remove it.
