Click OK when you receive the message to restart Outlook and Click Finish.
Click Exit on the File menu to quit Outlook and Restart Outlook.
In the Folder list, right-click the folder that you want to use with the Address Book (for example, right-click Contacts), and then click Properties.
Click the Outlook Address Book tab.
Click to select the Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book check box (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.
