Unable to access personal address book in Outlook 2003
Had to reimage my computer using my OS restore disk to restore Windows XP. Before reimaging, made a copy of my Outlook pst file. Reimaged computer and then reinstalled MS Office with all options. Changed the default location of the Outlook file (this is the only difference from previous installation) from the default Outlook location to a folder in My Docs.
Opened outlook using the restored file. I can see all my old mail, and I can see the contacts in the user pane, but it contacts folder does not appear in the folder pane AND none of the addresses are available from within a new message. When I go into the area to create new address books, I see an "Outlook Address Book" with no entries, but no personal address book. I created a new personal address book but I cannot add it to Outlook. It appears that I don't have permission for some reason. Also, I am logged in with full adminstrator permissions and this is a local machine.
I can open a contact individually and click "Action, Send a Message" but the names cannot be accessed from within any other areas. Please help! I have lots of mail and distribution lists to mail.
