Offline Address Book

Hi all,

I have checked through all the posts in relation to my problem but can't seem to find one identical to my problem.  

When I am logged into the network I set up my Outlook to provide me with Offline access to my emails.  I also set the options to download the Offline Address Book with full details (in the address book part there is no address book for me to select - is this normal)?

I then log into my stand alone account on the laptop and although my emails are there as I would expect there is no sign of the address book.  When I go to type a new mail and select the recipients I have the option to show the names from the Offline Address Book but it is empty as is the Outlook Address Book although my contacts have been synchronised across.

I am running Outlook 2000 with Exchange 2000 on the servers.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
