Hi

I'm migrating my outlook mail from one computer to another.  I've managed to get everything migrated except for one problem.  When I open outlook and click on new message, then click on the To button all my contacts are not there.  I get a message saying the following.  

This address list could not be displayed. Contact folder associated with this address list could not be opened.

Anyone tell me where I messed up during the migration?  

Thank you

Try this

Right-click on Contact in the left navigation pane and go to properties
go to outlook address book (TAB)
and check " Show this folder as an email address book"
press OK and check the contacts
