When you create new mail in Outlook, is there any way of
using the contacts area as a default for the address book?

Goto TOOLS - SERVICES - ADDRESSING and under the area "When sending mail, check names using these address lists in the following order" move up the CONTACTS option to the top to make it the first address list seen.

You may need to add the CONTACTS if it is not already there.

Does this work in Outlook 97 ?
I have Outlook 98 and your suggestion works OK, but I cannot see that option under Outlook 97.

First you have to include the Contacts as part of your Outlook adresses:

First install the service Outlook List adresses
You have to go to tools,Services add "Outlook List adresses"
and then clik Ok.
Second:
Close the Outlook and restart

Then go to the contacs folder and click in the right buttom
Select Properties
Select "Outlook List adresses"
and then clic in "Show Contacts as part of Outlook list adresses"

Then go to Tools,Services,adreess and clic in Add buttom and add
your contacts to the list.
Be shure the Contacts List are before the global list.

I hope this works,
