open outlook

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

now check if you still get the error

Okay...this is what I had to do.  Go to Tools...E-mail accounts and in there I had to go to Directory...Add a new directory and add it in there.  Thanks for all of your help.

I am having a similar problem. However, I am using OUtlook 2002.   Also, I can see all of my contacts in contacts list, but cannot access via the To; field when sending mail.  I have to manually copy and paste my addresses.   WhenI try to add a directory, it tells me it is NOT configured properly and goes back to the setup directory screen and doesn't finish.   So, I have tried all that is listed above and having the same problem.  NO access to my Contacts list.
