    We do have a strange problem. After copy all contact to phone SIM card, reset phone, battery out.

    After sync. about 10% of all contacts are moved to Outlook Address book from phonebook.

    Contacts can be updated in Outlook address book so they change in phone. Everything looks ok but the 90% are missing.

    What is wrong??

    Outlook03 Sync Contact Address not showing in e-mail

    Hope you solved this but if not you just need to enable your Outlook Address Book to show as email contacts:

    OUTLOOK > right click CONTACTS OUTLOOK ADDRESS BOOK and tick the "show this folder as an email address book"

    If its greyed out completely you'll have to add an "Adidional Addresss Book" in DATA FILES > ADDRESS BOOK

    Sorry I dont have Outlook 2003 to hand to test

    Search your PC for a file called Scanpst.exe and run it. If they are any errors in your outlook PST file, it should fix it.

    Address Book - Outlook - missing

    It's been a while since I have worked with Outlook 2007 and I have never worked with iCloud so I am running out of ideas to help. One thing to investigate is if your iCloud username and password have changed or if your outlook is having difficulty connecting with your iCloud account. Check your account and mailbox settings and make sure that Outlook can make the appropriate connections with all your accounts.
    Keep posting as you go. In the meantime I will investigate further.
