I've been using this application for a while and must have 100+ email addresses in there but I cannot find out how to print out all of the addresses at one time. I have no records in the contact file, so I can't even see a list of any emails addresses - where the heck are they? I want a list of all of them...

Anyone know how to recover the list?

Regards,

Sally.

right click on the contacts icon and choose properties...then "outlook Address book" tab...check off "show this folder as an email address book". See if you can see them there then... You can print from that folder.

Otherwise use the File menu to export them to Excel.

Thanks, did all that but the last instruction was already checked and nothing appeared even after rebooting/reloading etc, must be a setting somewhere that has not been checked. Tried exporting to excel that was OK, but of course there was nothing registering except headers, good old Outlook, a simple job made hard, give me back my yahoo! Any further advice Ziggy?

Yes, emails auto fill when I type in the first/second letter of a known address,
Ah, but have never saved them as contacts... if so that's my inexperience with this program, I didn't know I should be doing that - other email programs I've used do this automatically or at least ask the question, "do you want to add this address to your address book. All sene files are saved of course and filed in Outlook...

I know what you mean, and maybe the option is there...I know OE6 has it, but I never use it otherwise you get a ton of contacts especially from spam...

to work on creating proper contacts, open an email from someone...then rightclick on their name and choose "add to contacts"

you will get a window for you to add any additional info...it maybe a bit of work but that is all I can suggest.


it seems outlook stores the emails, automatically in a certain location. I I can only find utilities that you have to download that will get you your list...but they cost money....hopefully someone else can post for a solution to this.

here is some info.. http://email.about.com/od/outlookaddons/gr/ingressor_dt.htm

I think I solved your problem...I just found a free utility, I tried it on my PC and I was able to export the list to a CSV file. http://www.nk2.info/

It is a quick install, then use the file menu to open the "Outlook.NK2" file ( it defaults the location).

OK - this sort of worked, but it still left some emails behind, but much better than nothing, thanks, I appreciate your time. Must have a word wth uncle Bill and suggest they get back to basics and make it idiot proof for twits like me et-al... I asked about this same qusetion of several gurus locally (UK) - none knew the answer!
