I have Outlook 2000 and want to learn how to rebuild my Address Book (if it became corrupted).  I have found some Experts Exchange info for later versions of Outlook that seems easy (Tools -> Email Accounts -> Address Book functions).  But in my Outlook 2000 interface, I do not see a way to get at the Address Book to remove it and add a new one.  Thanks for guidance.  (I see an outlook.pst file in my Outlook directory.)

Hi.  This looked promising, but there is a problem - it does not have the interface described:
     Select Start > Settings > Control Panel.
     - Double click on 'Mail' or 'Mail and Fax' applet
     - If the Outlook Address Book service is listed, select it and click on the
     Remove button.

When I double click on "Mail", I get only an internet account listed.

The solution offered, perhaps it is for Corporate Workgroup installations?  My Outlook is installed as Internet only, so all I can add is a new internet account.  There is no interface to add or remove an Address Book.

Thanks for any ideas.

Adding more points.  I guess this is a more difficult question than appears on the surface.  Thanks if anyone knows the answer.  I've searched the web, see nothing that works with the interface I have on my W2000 laptop and WXP desktop.

I am accepting the comment because it is certainly "the answer" given the information I supplied.  No experts seem to know additional information on this topic, so it seems appropriate to close the question.  Thanks for taking the time to forward me the info!
