Outlook 2000 SR-1: Problem with Contacts in Email

Q: Outlook 2000 SR-1: Problem with Contacts in Email

I have Outlook 2000 SR-1, and use Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 2 (to the extent it is relevant). When I go to address an email by scrolling down the list of contacts that show up by clicking on the email "to" button, only some of my contacts come through, despite the fact that all of my contacts contain email addresses. I have checked the Microsoft website, and their fix on this (OL 2000 (CW)/Q197907) for Outlook 2000 is limited to Outlook installed with the "corporate or workgroup" option, which mine is not. I was unable to find any additional help for this version of Outlook and would greatly appreciate any insights. Thank you very much.

Hi lawyermom
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Do you have more than one Contacts folder in Outlook?

Open the Address Book in Outlook, are there folders or groups listed under Contacts?
If so, look in each to see if the missing Contacts appear.
If Contacts appear in other folders, you can Copy them to the main folder.

When using the To: button, you can also click the drop down arrow and switch to the other folders (if they exist) to select those Contacts.

Let us know what you find.

An advantage of having Outlook configured as Corporate/Workgroup, is the ability to create additional profiles in Outlook. If errors start occurring in Outlook, you can create another profile to see if the errors occur in the new profile, as well.

Migrating to a new computer. My Outlook 2000 had multiple 'contacts' folders that I used. When emailing, I was able to select the appropriate contact list as the source of the email address required.

Imported everything into my new computer, but don't seem to be able to access the other contact folders that I had added in my previous installation. Is there a way of re-connecting/associating the added contact folders again?

I want to consolidate info from multiple contacts with the same name ,into one contact. I have many contacts with partial info for the same person. For example: Contact Joe Smith has a home phone and an email. another separate contact Joe Smith has a cell phone # and a business address. Another separate contact Joe Smith has a home address and a fax#. I want to take all the info in all the separate contacts with the same name and consolidate them into one contact entry. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Too Many Contacts in outlook 2000

I have Outlook XP (2002), and the Help file has nothing on this. It has a merge feature when you create a new contact with exactly the same name or email address as an existing one, offering to merge the info on the new contact into the existing one, but that's no help with 2 or more existing contacts for the same person.

I bet there is a solution, either on the MS KLnowledge Base or elsewhere on the web. Perhaps the solution is a macro someone created that you can use.

My computer died and had to have some major work done. After reloading outlook 2000 I pasted my contacts back in the address book. The problem is this, when I get ready to e-mail the address book that pops up now only shows one e-mail address per contact. It showed all e-mail address for each contact before. Does anyone know how to correct this problem?

I am trying to import Contacts from an Excel sheet into Outlook 2000. I have created the Excel sheet according to the required Outllok 2000 format. I have an additional field "EXTENSION" (which contains the extension number to the Phone # of a contact). This "EXTENSION" field is not available by default in Outlook 2000, so I created a User Defined Field in Outlook.
The problem is that I am not able to Map the "EXTENSION" field from the Excel sheet to the field that I have created in Outlook coz it doesnot appear in the available fields when I try to map the fields.
Can any one tell me how I can import the "EXTENSION" field.

(Hope I havent confused you)


A:Importing Contacts into Outlook 2000

I have had exactly the same problem importing. I have a vendor database of 1000 vendors. I created a searchable "Keyword" column to import into Outlook. Outlook shows Keywords in the Outlook map, but there is no real field if you check a contact form. So I tired other fields. Since I have no other use for "Assistant"s Name ( who has assistants these days?) I used it because it worked. So, Now I select the database, click on Tools|Advanced Find|Advanced Tab|Name Fields| Assistant's Name. I enter the search word in "Values", click "Find Now", click yes to the next dialogue box, and up come my results. It is really a lot simpler and quicker than it sounds, because I do it alot.

So, just find a field that will work and that you do not need for something else.

Outlook usually files my contacts with the last name first (Smith, Joe for example). But sometimes when I get a contact forwarded to me by a co-worker, Outlook files it first name first. This is kind of annoying when I'm searching for a contact using last names. When I open the contact, the "file as.." pull down menu doesn't list last name first (Smith, Joe).

Any ideas?

Was wondering if anyone else has run across this problem. The environment is a simple peer-to-peer network. My workstation is win2k pro. I share my contacts with my secretary and she in on the network and her workstation in running win2k. We both have OUTLOOK 2000, the last version I believe that allows calender and contact sharing and synch'ing.
Anyway what happens is if I am looking for a contact that say starts with 'W' and I go and click 'W', sometimes they will not all show up but I know it's in my contacts file. So what I do is do a find and then it shows up.
I am looking on the msn support site...Just wondering if anyone has had this problem before.

A:Outlook 2000 - Some contacts not displaying

I'll presume you are using "delegates" to share contacts.

Items marked "private" will not show up unless the adequate permissions have been granted to the delegate.

Another way this problem mainfests itself comes from using "views." For instance, if you are looking at a telephone list type view of your contacts then contacts that don't have a telephone number entered will not show up. However, if you search for them <CTRL + ALT + F> then you can use find to make visible contacts that are excluded from a particular "view."

Good luck

Previously to 12/23 we had not had our computer set up with multiple users. We always turned on our machine under the "Administrator". I set up two "accounts" 1 - Admin and 1- other User. Now when I sign in under Admin, my contacts that were saved prior to the users we added are not available from within Outlook.

Hi kids. Ever since I upgraded to Win2k, my Outlook 2k won't show my contacts subfolders in that To/CC/BCC window. Which also means that it can't validate a contact's name when I just type it into the To/CC/BCC lines if that contact happens to be in a subfolder.

I do not like this. And I couldn't punch that magic MS KB set of buttons to get a reply (if indeed there is one out there) as to what might be going on.

May be a worthwhile side note that my Win2k is in French, and my MS Office is in English, and yet this To/CC/BCC window actually opens with French captions... Strange...

Any help would be very helpful.

A:Outlook 2000 Contacts files, where and how to save

Search for the .wab files. This is the windows address book. It's usually in the Windows folder, but it may be best to do a search. There may be more than one. When you find them you should be able to put them on a floppy or burn to a disk if too large.

Once upgraded to XP, just replace the address book under her user name in the Documents and Settings folder. You may also need to do a search for the location.

How do you have your contacts formatted in Word?

I know you can import contacts into Outlook via a .csv file.

You could try saving your word doc as .txt and then importing into Excel and then exporting as .csv (you'll have to play around w/ the formatting.

At this point, you should be able to import into Outlook.

Not really sure if there is an easier way?

After working perfectly, Outlook will no longer respond to search for entries in the Contacts folders from the empty box where one normally enters a contact name.

I have run "repair Office 2000 Professional," uninstalled and resinstalled, but I am unable to run a search for a contact except by using the Find Feature.

I'm running Outlook 2003 on Windows 7 64-bit. Transferred emails and contact info from Outlook Express on Windows XP. Two .pst files: Rick.pst and Fish.pst. Therefore, two contact folders. Both contact folders are attached to the OL2003 address book, both appear properly when I want to grab an address to put into the TO: field of a new email.

However, when I receive an email and right click on the sender's name, the context menu doesn't include an option to add the sender to the Contacts file. Also, if I reply to the email, the sender's name but NOT the sender's email address appears in the TO: field of the reply. I then have to manually enter the actual email address or (if the person is in the Contacts database) select them from the address book.

Would appreciate help on this. Thanks.

Hi BlueCat29,

The names are coming from Outlook's auto-complete cache.

When the list appears, use the cursor down-arrow to move to the name you want to remove, then press delete.

This is good to do when Outlook has remembered a previous invalid name.

Alternatively, to clear the cache completely you can delete file OUTLOOK.NK2.
Start button then select Run and then type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook and press OK
Delete the above file from the list that appears.

When you start typing an email address in Outlook 2007 it shows options to autocomplete the address from all the thousands of previous email addresses you've used in the past, not only those ones you've saved in your contacts list.

I need a solution to save all those 'extra' email addresses that show up.
I deal with sales and in one day I can send up to 1200 emails and saving each one would just weigh me down time wise.

If there's a program that will save these addresses please let me know, thanks.

I use MS Outlook 2000 on a Windows XP computer. Just recently my e-mails appear to have gotten stuck in the Outbox. When I look at the messages in the Outbox the messages are bold but not italicized so it doesn't look like it will send. I open the message and click send but nothing happens.

When I check my Sent Items to see if it has actually sent I will see the message duplicated hundreds if not thousands of times. The recipients will receive the message but mostly just once, some have reported getting it three times. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I just did a MS Office update download as well as a Spyware Removal software update but neither seems to have done the trick. Does it sound like I need to create a new PST file and move items over from my old one?

I have done quite a few office 2000 business addition installations, but this one has me stumped. For some reason even after email addresses have been put in to the TO or CC fields and sent, when starting to retype those same names they are not auto populating. Any ideas?

A:Outlook 2000 email addresses

My first thought is the Outlook.nk2 file. If it doesn't exist, i don't know if it will recreate itself or not. I do know that this is the file where outlook saves the auto complete addresses, and the path to the file should be:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

But, before messing with that i would look through the outlook email options. In outlook 2003 go to tools, options .... on the preferences tab click "email options", in the email options window click "advanced email options", and then there is the option to "suggest names while completing To, CC and BCC fields" . So you'll want to find the similar option in outlook 2000. if this option is turned off, turning it on may force the creation of the outlook.nk2 file. if not you should be able to create it yourself or copy it from another system or user profile. hope that helps, as i don't have a system running outlook 2000 available to test it on.

For no reason I can think of, when I open an email in the inbox folder in outlook 2000 and then close it, it disappears. It is not in the deleted items folder, spam folder or any other. This started a couple days ago. I did not change any setting I know of. This only happens in the Inbox folder. I can not locate any settings that would cause this.

Outlook is configured for workgroups although I am the sole user of the computer.

Hello all!

I have a small problem and am not sure how to fix it...I have Outlook 2000 on my work computer which is hooked up to a Novell network. We recently changed our exchange server to a different manager and had to archive emails before the switch. I am trying to retrieve my emails and can only find an *.ost file to import back to Outlook. However, I do not know what program to use to read this file. Should I just chalk my email up to being lost, or can I do anything with this *.ost file to find my archived email? Please help if you can - let me know if you need any more information!

Thanks for any input anyone can give!!

.ost files are your offline folder. Is that how you archived your mail by synching it all to a offline folder? Or did you put it all in a local folder (.pst files)

If you're getting a McAfee message, I'd be inclined to think that it's a McAfee issue. The "Authentication" required may be a setting you need to change in McAfee.

Any way to configure my searching to be more precise in sent or received emails? Outlook 2000 won't let me set the date range I want to search nor let me select the fields I want to search. When I go to advanced find in my email I seem to be stuck with searching "subject field" or "subject field and message body" or "frequently used text fields". Same with dates-only a few date range choices are allowed. What a waste of search time when I only want to search for the word "popcorn" used in one message body last Halloween week. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

A:Advanced Find in email for Outlook 2000

If you're just looking for the word "popcorn" in the body of the e-mail. Outlook can do that.
Click Find on the toolbar, then under Options click Advanced Find.
On the Message tab sheet, type popcorn in "Search for word(s):"
For the "In" drop down menu box, change it to "subject field and message body", then click on Find Now.

Outlook can also search in date range. Let me know if you still can't find the word popcorn.

A:Repeated Read receipts for an old email in Outlook 2000

Hi satish.kallem
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Is the user using an .ost file or a .pst file?
If it is a .pst file, create a second .pst file and make it the Default Delivery Location.
Close and restart Outlook 2000 for the changes to take effect.

Then Right click and Close the original .pst file.
Close and restart Outlook 2000. Does the repeated read receipt stop?

If so, reconnect the original .pst file to Outlook 2000:
File > Open > Personal Folders File (.pst)
Browse to the location of the .pst file and select it.
The original Personal Folders should then appear in Outlook 2000.

Change the Default Delivery Location back to the original .pst file, if desired.
Close and restart Outlook 2000 for the changes to take effect.
Let us know if that works for you or not.

From what program/service did you export your contacts? I just tried it w/ Gmail. I randomly selected couple names and exported them as a csv file for Outlook. Then from, I imported the file. The names showed up in People, and when I began typing in the To box, the name of the contact appeared. The normal behavior.

Then I randomly selected couple other names in Gmail, but this time exported them as a csv for Gmail. I was able to import this file in The names showed up in People but no other info got imported. No email addresses and no phone numbers. And typing these names into the To box didn't bring up anything. Information was in the csv file, but the fields are arranged differently between the two files.

Perhaps this is what's causing your problem. See if you can export a csv file compatible w/ Outlook.

A:Outlook 98 problem with contacts

I do not know anything about the messages you got, but I have moved Outlook Contacts at least a dozen times. If what you are moving are contacts, this is what works:

On the old computer, export the contacts to Excel. Excel is wonderful for this. All of the telephone, fax and email formatting will export fine. Do not map the fields. Let the default map take care of everything.

Then, however you wish, by CD, floppy, email, patch cable, etc, copy the Excel file to the new computer.

Last, import the Excel file into Outlook, again, accepting the default map.

A:Display email address in outlook 2000 instead of just names when sending

Unless you're using your company's global address list, you must have saved the e-mail addresses yourself (either in your personal address book or in Contacts).

If so, the name is just a short identifier for that e-mail address. You can change the names to include the e-mail address by editing it the name:

In Contacts, right-click the contact, click Open.
Change the Full Name line to read:

Contact Name: E-mail address
e.g. John Smith: [email protected]
In the File As line, make sure it says the same as above.
Click Save and Close.

Alternatively, use:
File, Address Book, double-click the addressee, click the Name tab.
Add the e-mail address to the end of the surname and make sure it appears the same in the Display line.

If you're using a global address list, I'm not sure how you'd change it, maybe someone else can jump in and help you?

If I have a category unnamed ("none"), then that is the only category that will show up.

Ok, now, I tried to move some of these categories into the unnamed category, trying to create a sub-category. Didn't work, But it did merge the two categories together (copy/paste). Since it didn't work the way I wanted it to, when I try to delete the merged category, it also deletes the other two original categories (If I recover from the Deleted Items, they go back to their respective categories, including the merged one). I don't want this merged category and cannot delete it. Any suggestions on how to unmerge this?

A:Problem on updating Windows Live Mail / LOST EMAIL ADDRESSES OF CONTACTS

Hi All,

This same problem happened to me, plus I have some additional info.

Just like the earlier poster, I am a longtime user of Windows Live Mail. I was prompted to update and did so, and liked a number of improvements.

However, the email addresses of my contacts had been removed, along with all info other than just the contact names. The number of contact names is unchanged, and as far as I can tell, all the same names are there. The few email addresses that do remain (about 20 out of 500) were all used recently, AFTER the first launch of the previous WLM version on this computer, which is new since February. My guess is that these email addresses were automatically added per the preference setting "add email addresses to contacts after third reply."

Here is the added info: when I tried to import my contacts again from a CSV file, it didn't work. A window came up saying that the program was updating my contacts, and it took a REMARKABLY long time, but after it finished, I was left with the same scenario. My CSV file is still good, but WLM will not work with it.

I'm out of ideas. Please help.

Thanks to all in advance.

I seem to have several contacts in Outlook 2007 that are invisible in the normal contact listings (in any view). However they can be found using the "Search All Contact Items" box. Under My Contacts I only have two listed files, one called Contacts, which contains all the visible listings, and the other called Contacts in My Mailbox , which has nothing in it. Can anyone help me find where these invisible contacts reside so I can grab them and put them in my main contact file so they are visible in a normal listing. Thanks!

Hi I have Office 2010 which came bundled with Outlook. What I am trying to achieve is to trasnfer my iPhone contacts to my Outlook on my PC. I go through the iTunes contact sync and in iTunes I select Outlook as the option to sync with. After iTunes tells me the sync is complete, no contacts appear in my Outlook.

I used to have Outlook Express but now have the full-blown version of Outlook, could this be causing the problem?

A:Outlook 2010 problem importing contacts

Do you have iCloud Contact sync enabled on your iPhone. Note that if you do, iTunes will say that contacts were synced but like in your case, no contacts will appear within your Outlook. iCloud Contact sync and Outlook sync via iTunes do not go together.

You can alternatively export your iPhone contacts to outlook using third-party tools such as copytrans contacts:

Make sure to select the Outlook option once prompted during export.

Hello. I am having a problem with Outlook 2007. I had a serious issue with my installation and had to reinstall Outlook. I have my backed up .pst and have successfully restore it -- sort of.

I have all of my mail and folders back, but I do not have any of my contacts or schedule information. I have looked around online and everything seems to say that these items ARE in the .pst file. Why do I see my messages, but not the contacts and schedule info?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:Outlook restore problem re: contacts and schedule

I hope you still have your backup pst file unmodified as it was before the reinstall. If you still have it I would make an extra copy of it as it probably still has the data on it. It has been years since I was lost pst data through corruption but it was an experience that I will never forget. I have been doing redundant backups of the pst file since.

What type of installation problems caused you to have do the reinstall? Was all your database information, mail, folders, calander and contacts working properly at this time prior to the reinstall? Have you sync'd the data with any other software or programs? Cell phone sync software can be used to overwrite pst data and have been know to corrupt pst files. Are you using a Microsoft Exchange server or interfacing with another mail program either on your PC or online? Microsoft Exchange stores it's data in a ost file. Did you import any data during the install of Outlook? Did you restore you pst file thorough Data File Management? I am not sure if I can help but this is where I would start.

Good Luck

I have around 950 contacts in my old Nokia C3. To transfer them onto my Lumia 820, I exported them as CSV and uploaded on Google contacts. Everything works fine but when I try to sync the account with my phone, I get all the contacts but half of them are without phone numbers, I see just the Google profile.

So, I called Nokia and they asked me to upload the contacts on Live. But when am doing so, I face the same issue, half of them dont show the numbers. This is confusing that I see all contacts on Google but not on outlook.

What I have tried:

1. Exporting google contacts as outlook csv
2. Delteiting my phonebook and re syncing Google account.

I have lost access to my phonebook and desperately need the fix.


A:Problem uploading contacts on

I tried Importing with .csv. It won't work. All I got was the names. I had to add all the e-mail addresses manually.
It must be common, because when I Googled it, There was a lot of people with the same problem.

I am trying to import a csv file containing contacts. I know the steps - Import Export > Import from another program or file > Comma separated values > Browse. I select the file and click Next. Then I get the box to select the destination folder. The problem is that no folders show up in the box. There is no destination folder displayed to select. This works on all other PC's that I've tried.

Are there any suggestions?

This computer has XP and Outlook 2003 SP1. I am in the process of updating to SP2.

Thanks for any help.
