"check names" in outlook 2003 not checking "contacts" anymore

just upgraded from outlook 2000 to outlook 2003.

used to be able to just type someones first name into the "to" field and then click on check names to resolve the name to an email address.  This process of name checking would check the names listed in my contacts folder.  I don't use nor maintain "address book".  

Now, check names seems to only want to look at "address book" and not contacts.

Any ideas.

Thanks for the link.  This document indirectly helped me.  I did not have a "outlook address book".  As soon as i added one, I could then go to my contacts folder properties and tell outlook address book to use "contacts" as my primary source for contacts.
