My outlook address book dose not save new information after I edit it. I .e. If I make changes to an existing email addres in my address book, it dose not keep the new entry. It always go back to the old address or informatio.

You need to make sure you are changing the actual email address and no just the display name for the email address. I would bet that you have been only changing the what shows in the Email window in Contact properties.

When you have the Contact properties window open, double-click on the address that is displayed in the E-mail box. This will bring up a separate Email Properties window. Here you wil see that the Display name and the actual email address are 2 separate entries.

Yes, thisis counter-intuitive. But then Microsoft is famous for implementing "features" that make total sense to its developers, but in fact are "out there" when encountered by real-world users.

Hope this helps.
