You need to set up an "outlook address book"

Here are the steps:

Tools/options/mail setup tab
Email accounts
add new directory or address book
additonal address book
outlook address book

exit outlook and go back in

right click/properties on contacts
outlook address book tab
check "show this folder..."

Job done

HTH
