Outlook not finding contacts of known contacts in list

* When I type  a known name into my “to” field  of an email message it does not always populate the email address even when I confirm the person is in my contacts
* When I select “Contacts “ form within the “to” selection box it shows blank.
* When I select Contacts from the menu bar it is full of my contacts

There's an easy fix for this, but I don't have a copy of Outlook at work to walk you through it.
What you need to do is go into your address book, and there is a place to select which "Contacts" is your default contacts so that this list is the first to be pulled up.

When I get home, I can post some screen shots.

- Choose Add new directory or address book, and then click Next.
- Select Additional Address Book, and then click Next.
- From the list of services, choose Personal Address Book. Click Next > Finish

hope it helps

Create a new contacts folder using a different name to force( make sure) you have the correct Contacts folder selected.
