Try the below steps and get back:

From the main outlook window: tools -> address book
From the Address book window: tools -> options
Select the “other” contact list in the first 2 drop down lists, and change the order of Contacts in the “check names” list.
OK out of the window, restart outlook, and now the customer doesn’t get prompted about non-existent address list.

outlook 2010..

i dont have those options..

Please try the following steps.

Click on File -> Account Settings -> Address Books
Select Outlook Address Book and click on Change
Select Contacts: <UserMailAddress> and click on Remove Address Book
Close Outlook and re-open

Also please verify Outlook is connected to Exchange Server. Please try disabling cached mode as well.
