Microsoft, Office, 2007, won't check GAC when typing in To: field of new message

I exported my contacts to .csv a few minutes ago, and afterwards, now whenever I open an email and begin typing in 'To:' field, it does not search the Global Address List for the employees name or email, it just looks in my 'Contacts' folder.  I have already went to 'Tools' ->'Address Book' ->'Tools'->'Options'->'When sending mail, check names using these address lists in the following order'  and I have set to Global Address List.  I have removed 'Contacts' from being checked at all.  Any ideas?

Greetings jimshock !

You may need to delete the old address book and enable Contacts Database As An Email Address Book in Outlook 2003

1. click Tools > Email Accounts
2. click on 'View or change existing directories or address books' option.
3. click 'Next'.
4. click on 'Add' button > 'Additional Address Books' option.
5. click 'Next'.
6. click on the 'Outlook Address Book' option.
7. click 'Next'.
8. click on 'Finish' button.

9. click on the 'Contacts' tab
10. right-click on the 'Contacts' option on the left-hand side (under 'My
Contacts').
11. click on the 'Properties' option - see multi-tabbed dialog.
12. click on the 'Outlook Address Book' tab.
13. ensure that the 'Show this folder as an e-mail address book' option is
selected.
14. click OK.

Your Contacts database should now be active as an e-mail address book.
