    I have my contacts recorded in Outlook but it seems my system can not access the information. Example: I initiate an e mail I click in the contacts field and the subsequent window shows no contacts in the address book. I have an address book titled contacts and I can go to the contacts tab and see them there but can not access when sending an e mail. Anyone?

    You HAVE to add those contact emails to your address book

    Welcome to TSG!

    When you click on the To:/cc: field, and the Select Names dialog comes up, what does the Show names from the: drop down box show?
    If it shows Outlook Address Book change it to Contacts.

    When I go to the to:/cc field and click it, it goes to the select names box. But nothing shows on the "type name or select from list" or "show names from the" boxes and nothing under the pull down seither.

    Right click the Contacts folder in the Folder List and Click Properties
    Click the Outlook Address Book tab
    Make sure Show this folder as an e-mail address book is checked.

    If that doesn't do it, have you tried Detect and Repair... from the Help menu?
