Personal Address Book question

By jsh61 ·
In Microsoft's infinte wisdom, it appears that in Outlook 2003 they've removed the functionality of being able to right-click a email sender's name and then select "Add to Personal Address Book" as you could in Outlook 2000. For those of us who still prefer to use the PAB instead of the Contacts list, it's very annoying not to be able to add a sender directly into our PAB from an open email.

Am I missing something, or am I right... Microsoft is FORCING me to use the Contacts list now??????

You can still use PABS in Outlook 2003, youjust need to add one via Tools, Email Accounts, Add a new Directory or Address Book, Additional Address Books, Personal Address Book.

We prefer using contacts over PABs as PABs are not accessible if you move PC or want to use OWA.

In 2003 microsoft has combined the PAB and Contacts under contacts, however you can choosed where you want to save personal addresses in.
Open the address book and click on tools options and select where you want to keep your personal addresses in ( PAB ), once this is done, you can always right click any email id and select the option add to contacts, and it will be added to your PAB.
