Default How do I get my contacts list to be address book?

I have migrated from Outlook 2002 to 2003 on a new laptop. Some simple
frustrations: how do I get my contacts folder to show up under my personal
folders. Then, how do I get my contacts to be my email address book?

Thanks and

Peace

Make sure you're using a Navigation Pane view that shows Contacts, like the
Contacts or Folder List views.

Then, how do I get my contacts to be my email
address book?

I believe I have gone through all the steps but I cannot get the newly named
My addresses to stick when I go to "to". I have to select it in the dialogue
box each time. Also the fill does not work when entering an addressee.

Click the Folder List button at the bottom. That will show all your
folders. Here are a couple of a pictures of what the icon looks like. It's
at the bottom left of the main Outlook window.

Now have the contacts in my Address book. Thanks.

But, the list shows up alphabetized by First name. I have selected last,
first but it doesn't work.

Did you creare a new folder named "My addresses"? Your contacts should be
in the "Contacts" folder, although there's nothing wrong with having more
than one contacts folder.

I have to select it in the dialogue box each time.


Which dialogue? In Address Book? Click ToolsOptions in Address Book and
select the order in which you want Outlook to search your Contacts folders.

Also the fill does not work when entering an addressee.


The autocompletion feature does not use any of your contacts folders. It
remembers the addresses you've used. So, if yo didn't keep the file that
contains the autocompletion data from before, then you'll have to wait while
it builds up again.

I believe I did it all as you said. When I reopen the change dialogue box it
shows last, first but when I open the address book through To in an new
email, names are still first last and alphabetized that way.
