Changing the Default Address book in Microsoft Outlook.
Posted on 2006-06-07
I have been asked to change the Default address book in Microsoft Outlook company wide. That's over a 100 Workstations running Ms Office 2003.
I know how to manually do it at each desk (see below). What I'm looking for is where is this vaule stored in the Registry. Once I get this, I can use Novell ZEN works and push out a registry change for all workstations.
From the Tools menu, select Address Book... . The Address Book will open in a new window.
In the new Address Book window, from the Tools menu, select Options... .
Under "Show this address list first:", use the scroll-down menu to select the appropriate listing (i.e., Personal Address Book, Global Address Book, or Outlook Address Book).
To save the changes, click Apply.
To exit, click OK.
