Where it says Outlook Address Book, can you use the pull down to select Contact. You want Contacts, not Address Book.  ... Thinkpads_User

Does doing this manually make any difference?

go to Tools >> Send/Receive

select Download Address Book

Was able to fix the issue by right clicking contacts folder > properties > address book properties tab > check use this address book in new emails.

THank you both.
