    Using Contacts list (Outlook98/WinNT4)

    I've just been given a new machine at work, with no noticeable improvement, I have to say, and I'm spending inordinate amounts of time finding how to reinstate all my preferred settings that I haven't looked at for the last couple of years!

    My current problem is that all my email addresses are stored in the Contacts folder (that's how it was set up originally) but now the Contacts folder doesn't appear on the list of address books etc when I'm creating a new email! I've just got the Global Address List and a Personal Address Book.

    How do I get my Contacts folder to appear on this list again, please? I've tried looking in help, but all the comments in there assume it's on the list already, nothing tells me how to put it on that list again! <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Many thanks!

    See MSKB article OL98: (CW) Contact Information Does Not Appear in Address Book. Post back if that doesn't help.

    Thanks, Hans, that was what I needed to know - although in this particular instance it just told me that Outlook had been installed wrong, because the option to include the Contacts folder was greyed out! <img src=/S/weep.gif border=0 alt=weep width=21 height=16>

    However, I've now beaten our Ops people round the head a few times <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> and they've reinstalled my Outlook correctly, <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> so I've got it back now! <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>

    Many thanks - again!
