Contacts not being linked in Outlook 2003

By OH Smeg ·
(I have just finished rebuilding a NB with 7 Pro 64 Bit and Office 2003.

Besides needing to approve whenever you open any new Office App the Address Book in Outlook is not being linked to the Auto Fill Feature so when you attempt to enter a E Mail Name you need to enter the full e-mail address.

I Imported the PST File into Outlook after the rebuild and when I closed the system down initially I exported this file to a Backup Location to enable data restoration.

The Contacts are present and correctly imported but the Auto Fill Option is not working. Anyone got any ideas? Otherwise everything seems to be working correctly.

OK I'm sick at the moment and defiantly not at the top of my game but does anyone know how to set the Outlook Contacts List tot he Default Address Book in Windows 7 which is what I suppose I'm asking?

Ugh. No Win 7 for me, but

This seems to have several solutions.

It's funny, the only reason I left Outlook on this machine was for troubleshooting reasons. Had to make up bogus accounts, contacts, etc.

Best of luck, and hope you feel better. Right now, I feel like something the cat dragged in myself.

edit:
<i>Autoresolution uses the address book. Autocompletion uses the names cache.
Autoresolution is the automatic name checking feature that Outlook has
always had. If you enter part of a name or a nickname then tab out of the
field (or hit Alt-K [Check Names]), Outlook will attempt to resolve the name
against your address book. If it can't it'll red underline it and you can
right click on the name to manually resolve it. Outlook will save the
resolution for future use.</i>

Not only the quadruple post but why it posted while I was still typing.
