Outlook VBA - "show this address list first"

I would like to be able to set a certain address list (a list that exists under the Outlook Address Book) to be the first list shown in the Outlook Address Book and when composing messages etc.

I will use this VB.NET command line app, but VBA code will work.

Here is some sample code. I've only done it be C++ for an address list.

On one box or many? Seems easier to do it manually unless it must be done across many of them.

Too many to make manual changes feasible, especially given that an unattended option likely exists with the use of code.

Too all who read this message, please note that manual options will not be considered for acceptable solutions.  I am asking for VBA code to make this an unattended change.

Are you using group policy to manage your network?

If so, you can edit the domain policy to set the Address Book First like peakpeak said.

This solution would need to be VB code.
