Address list can not be displayed
Posted on 2004-11-09
I recently wiped my WinXP machine clean and reinstalled everything (including the O/S) to a clean formatted disk. Before wiping everything out I copied my OUTLOOK.PST file to a network drive for safe keeping... After reinstalling MS Office (inclusive of Outlook) I copied back the PST file to the appropriate location. All of my email messages were intact including the contacts...However, when I compose an email and try to reference my contacts it tells me "The address list could not be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted or you do not have permissions..blah blah.." I do know that the user id changed from my original configuration... It's still me but I used the full name rather than first initial last name format. I did change the user name via the accounts options but the folder for me is still the full name and I think this may have something to do with it...
Can anyone help me resolve this.? Should I export the contacts then re-import them?
