When I try to add a new contact the email form opens.  It doesn't matter if I click on the New button or go through actions.

Yes I want a contact form to open ipm.contact or a custom form.  When I try to add a contact Outlook opens the ipm.message email form.

Try this, in outlook, right click on the contacts folder, click properties.

Then, where it says:

"When posting to this folder, use:"

chose "Contact".

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So do you have form set for email aswell.
Can you remove that form and just use only contact form  and see if that would work ?

ipm.contact is the name for the default contact form

ipm.post is the form used on the inbox.

I was somehow able to re-save the form and it now works.
