Hi kids. Ever since I upgraded to Win2k, my Outlook 2k won't show my contacts subfolders in that To/CC/BCC window. Which also means that it can't validate a contact's name when I just type it into the To/CC/BCC lines if that contact happens to be in a subfolder.

I do not like this. And I couldn't punch that magic MS KB set of buttons to get a reply (if indeed there is one out there) as to what might be going on.

May be a worthwhile side note that my Win2k is in French, and my MS Office is in English, and yet this To/CC/BCC window actually opens with French captions... Strange...

Any help would be very helpful.

Hi, down. I'm not at work but will be on Monday in case we can't find it today.

Go to Tools-Services (I assume you're on an exchange server). Click the Addressing tab. Isn't it in there where you can tell it what you want to see or use "as outlook address book" or something?

Perhaps just right-click and "add this folder as..."?

Dreamy, you are as always the (wo)man. But, actually, no, this is my home machine. So, y'know, just the slow ol' modem. No exchange server, no corp. workgroup.

I'll be waiting with bated breath...

What do you see listed in the dropdown box to the right of "Show names from the:"?

Try this...
In Outlook, right-click Contact folder and choose Properties. On the Outlook Address Book tab check the box "Show this folder as an e-mail address book."
