    I just imported my contacts from Outlook 2003 into Outlook 2007. I have 3-5 sub-folders under contacts, with some of those sub-folders having multiple sub-folders. I exported the contact folder including subfolders from Outlook 2003 as a .pst file and imported that file in Outlook 2007 the same way.

    Outlook set up the imported folders just as they had been in Outlook 2003. The problem is that when I search for a contact in either the mail view or the contact view I immediately receive a message 'contact not found'. This happens so quickly and in every case that I believe the search engine is not actually searching the contacts folders and subfolders which I imported, but is searching the original contacts folder created at installation of Outlook 2007. Is this correct? Can someone tell me how to get my imported contact folders integrated into the system so that all functions (search, etc) work on them?
