    Why can't i get my outlook contacts presented in my email address book


    Windows v20H2 Microsoft 365 MSO (16.0.13901.203366) 32 bit

    I have created a new contacts folder and imported into it my email contacts from my iPhone via a csv file (Fig1). I have marked this contacts folder to be shown as an email address book.(Fig2/4). I have created a new mail profile to use these settings (Fig3) but I still can't get a new email to show the contents of the address book when to I want to make an entry into the 'To' box.

    What am I doing wrong or what am I omitting?

    :)

    Cannot add contacts personal folders to address book in Outlook 2016

    Many thanks for all your suggestions, HippsieGypsie, but nothing seems to be working. I cannot delete my folder so I have to keep trying to get it included in the list of available address books. My contacts are all in the Contacts - Personal Folders, but this list is not included amongst those offered by Outlook as a default address book.

    How do I get Outlook 2010 to export the correct address book

    I have three options listed in Outlook when I try to export a CSV contact list from the address book.. Myself, another person, and the 'Outlook Data File'. I am the default person.

    When you open the address book, the choice that has the current contacts is my name-contacts. When you go to the export file section, it is called suggested contacts. If I export this file and open it in excel, it shows names and street addresses with no email address listed. There are also names in the file that are no longer in my address book.

    How do I get the address book to export the current list from my address book, and how do I get the excel file to show the email address?

    Why can't i get my outlook contacts presented in my email address book

    No Earthlink Address Book for Earthlink, an Account under Outlook

    Well then explain this - On my desktop computer (Win10, Office 2013) a separate address book was generated when I added my Earthlink account to Outlook. So when I open the Outlook Address Book I see an Outlook address list, an Earthlink address list and an icloud (I also added my Icloud account) address list, all separate lists. Originally the earthlink address list was empty but I imported the earthink address book from another computer. The HP
    all-In-One computer is running Win10, Office 2019, this is the computer I am having trouble with. Not sure if the problem is unique to Outlook 2019 or not. If you look at the Outlook email file structure under on the desktop unit you can see the earthlink email structure has a contact sub-folder. This is not the case in the All-In-One system. Only an outlook contact sub-folder is available. I was wondering how I can add a contact sub-folder.
