    OE Contacts pane missing all contacts (OE 6)

    For some reason the contacts pane on the main view is missing contacts that are present in the address book. ? Link broken to the main address book??
    Any suggestions to bringing the contact list back to the main view?

    It looks OK except for the blank contacts list. You could try closing and then reopening your Contacts List. I'll poke around some and see if I can come up with something a bit more useful.

    Re: OE Contacts pane missing all contacts (OE 6)

    I tried this. I even tried exporting and importing the contact list and the even though it flashed a lot, no contacts.
    Also If you create a new contact it adds it to the address book but also does not appear in the contact list.
    ? SP2 problem??

    Did this problem start right after you updated to SP2 ??

    Take a look here and here. There might be a solution for you. Scroll down the page at the second site to the WAB section. HTH

    Not certain if started with SP2 but may have, it is all about that time last week.
    I checked the 2 links. Cannot restore the dll as have sp2 and no backup file.
    The 2nd link is incorrect there is no options under tools of the address book. And in regular options of OE6 nothing to alter wrt adress books

    Sorry, but I think I'm out of suggestions. I'll keep an eye out for a solution and post back if I think I have something. It's probably something simple, like a setting or a check-box somewhere.

    I agree probably a registry setting or an SP2 issure

    Re: OE Contacts pane missing all contacts (OE 6)

    Very old thread, but had this problem and just found solution.

    The address book won't display once it's over a certain size: nobody seems to know if it's number of contacts, or size, but seems to be former. Also seems to only depend on number of contacts in active pane (ie your identity and shared). Shifting contacts to another identity brings contact view back, as does deleting a contact from your identity (and adding one back makes them disappear again).

    Have not found any official MS documentation of this issue.
