No Address Book available, and can't add one
Posted on 2005-03-09
Not sure how I got here, but after struggling with a .pst file backup and moving to a new computer, I can't select recipients for emails by pressing the "To:" button anymore. There are no names in the list, and the "Show names from the:" pulldown menu is empty.
I have an address book, and I can see the Contacts, arranged in five folders. If I right-click on any contacts folder Properties>Outlook Address Book, the option to "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is greyed out.
Great. So I go to Tools>View or change existing directories or address books, and the list is empty. So I click "Add">"Additional Address Books">"Outlook Address Book">Next and I get the following caution dialogue box:
"The account you have added is not fully ocnfigured. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly."
Click on "OK", and it dumps me back to where I can select "Outlook Address Book" or "Personal Address Book"
I just want to be able to select recipients from the "To:" box. Anybody?
