    Recalcitrant address book (XP)

    My hard disk crashed so I had to install windows and office on a new disk. I did recover outlook.pst (thanks to the god computus) but although I can access my contacts via the folder list I cannot find them when composing a new email and clicking on the To button - i get this message - "the address list could not be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened ..."
    Any ideas anyone?

    Right-click the Contacts folder.
    Select Properties...
    Activate the Outlook Address Book tab.
    Make sure that the "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" check box is ticked.

    You can also try Tools | E-mail Accounts...
    Click "View or change existing directories or address books..."
    Click Next.
    Make sure that the Contacts folder is listed,

    I had already tried the second suggestion and really felt that your first suggestion would work but alas...
    any other suggestions?
