Outlook 2000 Contacts/Address Book prob

By kessler ·
Outlook 2K will not allow a user to use his "Contacts" as an Outlook Address Book. The "Show names from the"drop down list does not give the contacts folder as an option and viewing Contacts folder properties, Outlook Address Book tab, the "show thsi folder as an e-mail address book is grayed out. Anyone encounter this prob?

You can do it, here is how:

Display your folder list if not already displayed (View menu, Folder list).
Right-click on your contacts folder in the list, and select Properties.
Go to the Outlook Address Book tab.
Select "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book"
You can also give it a name on this panel.
Click OK.

Have fun.

Sounds like you don't have the "Outlook Address Book" service installed. Go to Tools, Services, Add and Choose "Outlook Address Book". Then you'll need to Exit and Log off. I removed my OAB service to verify that it caused the problem you are having.

Melody
