Our server ran out of disk space and my profile got messed up.  In addition I am unable to open outlook at all.

My address book can not be found or is not a addrss book.  Cancel and retry both close outlook.  I did a repair and now I can open outlook but it's not finding my address book

Looking for suggestions, hoping my outlook data is not lost.

    Greetings, rwhubbard996 !

    If you are using Exchange environment, you address book is in Exchange. Click on Address Book button in Standard toolbar.  Follow this article to look for addresses

    If you are using Internet environment, your address book is in a PST file. In Outlook 2003, in the Navigation Pane, click the Contacts folder. In the Contacts pane, right-click the Contacts folder (under My Contacts) and click Properties. (For earlier versions of Outlook, right-click the Contacts folder in the Folder List and click Properties.) On the Outlook Address Book tab, select the Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book. Check box to include the folder in the Outlook Address Book list.

    Best wishes!
