Outlook 2003: Contacts not in Outlook Address Book

Q: Outlook 2003: Contacts not in Outlook Address Book

I have reinstalled OL2003 and my account was imported from Outlook Express. However, I cannot figure out how to get my contact folder to show in my address book when I am looking for an address to send an email. The Address Book properties shows 'Contacts' as the address source, the first list to be searched and checked the option for it to be the contact folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Outlook 2003 not Outlook Express
Operating System: Windows XP

How do I save my Outlook Address Book (all Contacts) so I can take it from one computer (my desktop) and install it in another computer (my laptop)?

Have you ever actually done this yourself? The reason I ask is because the standard Microsoft Help and Support steps are not right.

Once again, I use Outlook 2003, not Outlook Express.

Thank you very much for your help...

Outlook 2003 - XP...

I can't figure out why my Address Book and Contacts are different.
I'd like to update my Contacts to be the same as my Address Book, which is where my Outlook goes to address my mail.
I need to export my Contacts to import into my new Mac.
I can't see any way to export the Address book, or even save it to a PAB file, although I must have done it sometime ago when I first set up this system.
I do understand the Contacts is contained as a folder in my PST file.
But where does the Address Book file live and how do I use it to update my Contacts?
Am I crazy?
Thanks,
Ron

Can anybody help me. i have a new machine and intend using mozilla thunderbird rather than MS outlook.
Is there a way I can copy contacts from old machine and install in Thunderbird?
 

A:Outlook address book/contacts

Thunderbird can import messages and contacts from Outlook, that's for sure, but I can't find out what format the data must be in for importing. If you export your "Contacts" folder with Outlook's "Import & Export" tool, that will create a PST file which contains all your contact data.

If Thunderbird can import PST files you're good to go. If it can't, your Outlook "Contacts" folder can instead be exported as a 'Comma Separated Values (Windows)' file (CSV) which can be imported into most popular Windows email clients.

Export both formats at same time and I'm sure one of them will be okay for importing into Thunderbird.
I do know it will import Outlook data (I just checked their website) but I've never actually used it to know which file-types it can import.

I opened my address book up and edited it (adding and deleting anyone I wanted/didn't want). I then closed the address book, and went into outlook and clicked on Contacts. It still shows everything I just deleted, and doesn't show anything new.

I was under the impression the Address Book and Contacts were the same thing. Apprarently not! Anyway, I selected all my contacts, and deleted them. Now my contacts are empty, but my address book is full and what I would like to use. How do I get all those "contacts" from my address book into the Contacts folder within Outlook so when I'm composing an email, I can hit on the New email, then to the TO..(to bring up my contacts)

However, when I am in the inbox and click on "New" to create a new email message, then click on "To" to select the intended recipient, no contact list appears???

Does anyone know how to configure this correctly?

A:Outlook 2007 address book does not see contacts

Hi Donjar,
It sounds like your contacts folder is not listed as an Outlook Address Book. Right-click your contacts folder and go to Properties and then the Outlook Address Book tab. Check the box for "show this folder as an email address book". Hope that helps.

I have all my contacts including postal address and email addresses stored in outlook 2010 as contacts it syncs to my iPhone and generally it works very well.

But when I want to send an email to one of these contacts I start the new email and go to the outlook address book but then if this is a recent contact that I have not emailed before.

I have to add the email address into the outlook address book as a new contact.

Then outlook asks me if I want to update the person in the contact list, clicking yes adds the email address to the contact list.

But why do I have to add the email address into the address book why does it not retrieve the email address from the contact list

So is it possible to add all my contact emails addresses into the address book without having to do them one by one.

A:What is difference between address book and contacts in outlook

Address Book was actually Windows Address Book that came with WinXP and was used by Outlook Express. Contacts in Outlook could be used to import from WAB. The Contacts in Win7 is located in C:\Users\YourLogin\Contacts appears to be separate from Outlook's Contacts which are stored along with messages, settings, etc., in Outlook's .pst file.

I exported my address book from Outook 2003 into the Windows (XP) Address Book. This is great because then I don't have to have Outlook open to view my address book.

However, it isn't linked to my Outlook address book so that whenever I made a change to my addresses in Outlook, it'll reflect in the Windows address book.

I had that set up perfectly in my old computer (Windows 98SE) but can't get it to work in XP.

Any tips or ideas?

Hi,

I'm having a problem with my Outlook Address book not displaying some of my contacts.

The setup is this:

Within Public Folders, All Public Folders I have 'My Folder' and a section for Contacts.

With Contacts I did go to properties -> Outlook Address Book tab -> and checked 'Show my folder as an e-mail address book'

However not all of the contacts correlate with this folder. I've named the address book 'My Folder contacts' to make sure I was looking at the right folder.

I did check several entries that were not appearing and made sure that in the field: "File As" that it was filed as Last Name, First Name. But still it did not show up in the email address book.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I recently installed a new hard drive, but first made a backup of my Outlook PST file to reimport all my mail and contacts. Everything seems to be working fine with the exception of the address book icon on top. When I click on it, it lists two different contact folders. When I click on the first, contact folder, I get the following message: "The addressess list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened. It may have been moved or deleted or you do not have permissions." I've tried deleting the first contacts folder, but it won't delete. The second Contacts list folder does contain my contacts. Do you think it is some kind of identity or permission problem? Any suggestions.

Repeat for each additional Contacts folder.​
After completing the above steps, open the Outlook Address Book:

Highlight each Address Book listed, one at a time and click the: Remove button.

Close and restart Outlook 2003, then add back the Outlook Address Book.

I have been given an address book to maintain. I've pretty much figured out everything as far as setting up new contacts and groups but I do need some assistance.

This organization allows members of a certain level to obtain an @thiscompany.org alias address.

What the assignment of that address does is only forward to the members real email account.

Since I've just gotten involved, I need a way to do a reverse look up.

ie. [email protected] how do I find out who that belongs to, like a cross reference to the members name and real email address.

Is there a way to do this?

Hu Guys - and Happy New Year

I had to get a new computer - the old one crashed (I think I may have inadvertantly deleted a .dll file!). I was able to install the Old hard drive (which will not boot) in the new computer - so at least I have all my old files stored and have been able to transfer many to the new hard drive.

The new unit came with WinXP - and I installed MS Office 2003.
I used to use Outlook Express (in Win98) and liked the fact that I could organize my list of e-mail addresses into folders. I am now using OUTLOOK as my e-mail client and can't figure out how to organize the address book. I tried importing the old address book from Express with no luck. CAN I ORGANIZE MY E-MAIL ADDRESSES IN THE OUTLOOK ADDRESS BOOK?

I've started having a number of problems with Outlook 2003. The latest is that when I want to create message and click on the To or Cc boxes, the Select Names box opens but there is nothing in the Shows Names from the: box, and the To, Cc and Bcc at the bottom are all greyed out. I've tried all kinds of things but nothing works. However, Contacts still has all the info in it so if I type a name in the To or Cc box, the email address appears.

A:Outlook 2003 address book missing

When the Outlook Address Book service has already been added and the option to select the Contacts folder as an Outlook Address Book is still disabled and greyed out, it means that the Outlook Address Book service is corrupted.
To fix this you can remove the Outlook Address Book service, restart Outlook, and then add it again as indicated by the steps above.
Sadly this workaround will not work in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 as removing the Outlook Address Book service is not supported in these versions. In this case, you must recreate your mail profile.
(Re)creating a mail profile
Once you?ve located and opened the Mail applet, you can recreate your mail profile via the following steps:
1. Press the button Add?
- Do NOT use Copy? not even when you want to recreate your mail profile or you?ll end up copying the corruption as well.
- Do NOT delete your old profile, not even when it is corrupted, before you verified that the new one works. You might want to look up some account settings afterwards.
2. Enter a name for your new Mail Profile.
3. Select to add a new mail account.
4. Make sure you choose the correct account type. Ask your ISP or administrator if you do not know this.
- If you are using Live Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or AOL, you can find the settings you need to follow to another page.
- In Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013, you can simply type your desired display name, email address and password and Outlook will try to determine and configure your account automatically. If this fails you can still choose to configure it manually with the information provided by your ISP.
5. Follow on-screen instructions to (further) configure your account. Again; Ask your ISP or administrator if you do not know these details.
Otherwise, you'll have to try some commercial recovery tools. Several are listed here: https://www.repairtoolbox.com/addressbookrepair.html Address Book Repair Toolbox

I had a disk crash - luckily I backed up several days earlier.

I have my 'old' .PST file from Outlook 2003.

I rebuilt the disk with the same XP and Outlook.

I imported from the .PST - I have all my emails, deleted items, folders, etc. All is good.

Except I have only 5 contacts - from a long time ago. I figure the other contacts have to be in the .PST file - but where?

The last time I exported my address book the process worked fine. Yesterday I updated my address book and went to export it to a folder on one of my hard drive; I got a notice it had failed. Here is the message I got:



I rebooted and tried again with the same results. The address book (contacts) is there because I use it all the time

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this. I thought about reinstalling Outlook, but first I thought I would ask.

Thank you.

A:Outlook 2003 Export Address Book

Try a "Repair" on Outlook 2003, rather than a reinstall. In Outlook 2003, click on "Help" and then "Detect and Repair".

I use Outlook 2003 and haven't had any problems exporting. But, with Microsoft dropping Office 2003 support, like they are doing for Windows XP, I have been looking at a replacement (other than upgrading to a new version of Office). I've been trying out Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail. Thunderbird is "winning" so far.

Hello all. I have purchased a new laptop running Windows 7. I still run Office 2003 and Outlook 2003. I use it as my front end to a web based mail service. I have installed Office 2003 with SP3 and it is all patched and matches the system that I am moving from.

The issue this time is that I see my emails and I see my contacts, but when I open a new message or respond to an old message and hit the TO or CC or BCC, I get the error that says “The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved….”

When I click on my address book I get an error msg from word that says "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persist, restart Outlook." I have restarted outlook, done a system restore and tried to reinstall SP3. I could not reinstall SP3 because it is already on my computer. I don't have an installation disk for Office 2003 any more or I would uninstall and reinstall the program.

I can copy & paste the address in the "send to" box and it works. I just can't get the address book to open.

I recently changed an email address in Outlook. This address is included in a distribution list (MAPIPDL). However, when I sent out an email using this distribution list, it went back and used the old email address.

I went in and totally deleted the distribution list and the address of the recipient and then re-entered their address using wife's name first rather than husband's name first, thinking that might confuse it enough to use the corrected email. However, when I sent something out again using this distribution list, it went back and used the same old email address for this recipient.

There is no trace of that old email address left in the address book and I am dumbfounded as to how to get this corrected.

Thank you for your help.

What happens if you remove them from the "D" list and send an email out using it? As a last means delete them from your address book close Outlook then reopen it and add them back as a new contact. Open the distribution list and add their contact to the list and see what happens. Outlook picks the email address's from whatever is in the email area of the contacts details, so double check these details through the Contacts folder, rather than through the Distribution List.

A:Outlook 2003 Address Book/new Email Problem

Hello to all,

I have resolved my issue with address book. It appears that my address book was opening up off screen on the right hand side. I am not sure what had changed in regards to why it had opened off screen or why it now has restored to the middle of the screen. The only thing that I had done recently was to send an email to a friend and typed in the email address then clicked send. After that when I tried to create a new email and select the address book it would open the window in view.

Basically I'm a moron but had to post the resolution to my problem anyways.

im new on here, i found your site while searching for another problem, which i obviously found the solution for here.

I was wondering if you guys could help me figure this one out. I'm on a company network (exchange server), where i have my contacts in a public folder. However when i receive an email, and i right click and press add to contacts, it automatically adds it to my personal contactlist and not the one in the public folders. Is there any way to change the default save-to address book?

hope you guys can help

p.s i realise that you can either drag it, or instead click file/move to and so on, however as i add quite a lot of contacts it would be nice if it was done automatically

Previously when I right clicked on an address in an email I got this a drop down with the following options (Properties, Send Options, Add to Contacts, Look up Contact, Add to Personal Address Book, Cut, Copy, Paste, Clear, Select All)

Now I get a completely different list (the email address itself, Schedule A Meeting, Getting Office Location, Call, Send Mail, Additional Actions, Create Rule, Send Options, Add to Outlook Contacts, Look up Contact, Outlook Properties, Copy)

Why am I getting this difference and how do I get the Add to Personal Address Book option back ? I've tried removing the address book and the contacts and adding it back, restarting outlook and the machine but no joy

I have over 13 years of Outlook Express folders and addresses that I desperately need to convert to Outlook 2007. I should have imported them into Outlook before I made the "Easy File Transfer" to the new Win 7 machine, but didn't know I needed to do that. Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.

The up-to-date data is still in my old machine and also in an external hard drive backup. I have isolated the Outlook Express personal folders into .dbx format and the addresses into .wab format.

Is there a way this can be reformatted into Outlook? Or is there some other way? I would probably also need to delete what is already in Outlook first, or I would have many more duplicates.

I welcome any suggestions.

Is ther any way of doing a mass update to change the way Outlook displays email addresses.

In Outlook, you can define the way NEW contacts are displayed (First Name/Last Name or Last name/First Name) through Tools/Options/Contacts/Contact Options).

The issue is that the default was set to Last Name/First Name. Now the user want to change all of his contact displays to First Name/Last Name.

So far we've change the default for NEW contacts to be First Name/Last Name... now how can I change the existing contacts with out going through each individual one and changing the display individually.

Search for *.pab on your hard drive or you can go to Tools, Services, select your Address book and look at the properties.

Can anyone help me. I have updated (Cookiegal will be happy that I now have genuine Windows). I have loaded MS Outlook onto new system but can't work out how to get address book from old to new. I have copied all files to disk.

I am using XP.

I have made several Groups of addresses to use as distribution lists. If however I decide to remove a single recipient from the list they also get removed automatically from my main address data base. Is there any way round this problem?.

Are you sure you are deleting them from the distrubution list? Try 'removing' them. I'm not exactly sure how to do this, but I know it is possible.

I have a problem with my address book. Currently all contacts are in the wab.exe file, and not in a specific address book. How can I import that information from the .exe, to my .wab? If I back up the .exe file, I lose all contact information, as it picks up the address book on the local drive that I backed up to. I have tried improting/exporting, can't seem to get it to work. HELP! Have lost address book twice in last 6 months, and seeing as I have 1400 contacts and groups, can see the problem this causes.

Thank you,
Shawn

Hello Squelch & welcome to our Forum.
Do you mean Outlook Express 6 or Office Outlook 2003 or 2007?

When creating a new email and using the address book to select the receipient, the names are listed first name, then last name. We would like them list last name first. Can this be done?

We are using Outlook 2003 and I have looke everywhere for a setting. We are filing them correctly and have the full names set up.

thanks

Are you making sure that the "file as" menu on the edit screen is the way you want?
If you click on the down arrow beside the name, it will usually reverse the order.

My Windows 7 laptop crashed but before it did I copied my Microsoft Office 7 outlook mail Address Book into my Documents. Bought a new Windows 8 laptop & installed a new Office 7 outlook in it. I got a computer store to copy what they could off the old computer hard drive. I opened what they retrieved and the old address book is in a Microsoft Excel .csv file. Is there a way I can move it to my new outlook 7 address book? I could copy/paste them one at a time but was hoping there was a better way. Thanks in advance, Roy

Hi, at the suggestion of someone online, I downloaded Eudora (a mail client) just to test an email I'm sending to a bunch of people. Well, ever since I did, my address book, hundreds of email addresses, has been wiped clean. Gone. I can't find the address book in Eudora, Outlook or Outlook Express.

Please someone tell me how I can get my address book back! How did this happen! I left a message at Eudora, too, but they haven't responded yet.

I'm using Windows XP.

Thanks,

Karen

A:Outlook Address Book Gone

Hi kaneshansley.
Do you mean it's empty or just plain gone?
In Outlook, click Tools>E-Mail Accounts.
Under "Directory", select "View or Change Existing Directories or Address Books"
Click "Next". Do you see an existing Address book?
If not, click "Add" then select "Additional Address Books" then Click "Next".
Do you see any Address books Now?
I'm at a machine with Outlook 2003 right at the moment.
If your version is different, please post it.

My outlook address book has some doubles and names I no longer want.

When I try to delete them, they don't

Any ideas?

What happens when you try to delete them? Do any error messages appear? Are you experiencing any other problems with your computer which may be related?

More information is needed.

A:Outlook 97 Address Book

A possible solution. . .

I transfer an updated address book on a weekly basis from an AS/400 to Outlook97 on a pc.

I realise you are coming from a different starting point, but the first few steps may be relevant.

1) The AS/400 address book file is downloaded to a pc as an Excel file.
2) On the file menu of Outlook97 click on the option for Import and Export.
3) The list on the next screen (Import and Export Wizard)defaults to "Import from Schedule+ or another program or file". Accept the default and click Next.
4) On the next screen (Import a File) I click on "Microsoft Excel", but if you scroll down you will see that there is an item in the list for "Personal Address Book". That item might work for you.

My old Gateway desktop screen died, so I bought a new Dell. The Gateway screen cable is not compatible with my Dell. I have a transfer cable for Windows 7 and I had Carbonite on the Gateway and have it on the Dell, so the .map file is probably there somewhere. The problem I have is that I was running Outlook 2003 on the old computer and I am running Office 2007 on my new computer, but it didn't have Outlook. I bought- Outlook 2010 but it won't let me import the old file. I really need my address book. Help!

I've just got a new computer and am having trouble getting the Outlook address book to work. I'm running Windows Vista Business.

Help says "The Outlook Address Book is created automatically and contains the contacts in your default Contacts folder that have either e-mail addresses or fax numbers listed."

I have imported all my contacts from the old machine into Windows Contacts, but Outlook doesn't seem to have created an address book from them. When I open the address book, it gives me a drop down menu to chose the folder I want to use. When I select Contacts nothing appears.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Steve.

A:Outlook address book problems

the easiest way to do this is to open up Windows Contacts,Hit the Alt key. Go to Edit/Select All. Then Edit/copy. Open up OE/Address Book and go up to Edit and Paste. You will have to OK each contact that you have pasted into the Address book separately.

I am running Win XP SP2. Problem is in Outlook Express Address book; my group address lists are being limited in number of addresses. One is stuck at 18 total names, so I started a second similar group and it is limited to 9. If I try to add a name to either of these, it goes on but another name is bumped off. Nothing is on MS KB or anywhere else that I can find on this. Everyone I talk to says there is no limit on address book size. Help!

I would export to word or excel where you can better control the formatting and see it on print preview.

I wonder with all these viruses that are sent thru the e-mail attachments,would'nt it be a gook idea to move your email address list to a seperate folder so that the viruses cant link themselves to them. I've done this and if I need to send an email to someone I just go to that folder and clik on their name and it ask if i want to add to address book clik on add to. Then when I'm through I move that person back to the folder. I allways run a
virus program and update to be sure. Does this sound like a good idea or not. Perplexed : Danny
