    Two Contact Folders Show (outlook2003)

    When I open outlook and highlight Contact, two contact folders are listed. They are in the same view but differ slightly. How can I merge them into one folder and avoid duplicates. I think I am losing my mind when I cannot find a contact that I know is there and it turns out it is in the other folder.

    It may be that you have more than one Data File (aka PST file). Have a look under Tools|Options|Mail Setup|Data Files (in the middle). How many files are listed there? HTH

    Edited: Try also using Folder List View - next to the chevron at the bottom left hand side of the Outlook window.

    I only see one pst filel, but when I open that file I see the archive pst file and two other pst files,one is some kind of back up I made and the other an old pst file. They are all part of the folder where all data is stored.
