Set Outlook 2010 to use Contacts@ instead of suggested contacts

When I create a new email and click the To button to select a contact, the suggested Contacts are the default. How do I change that from Suggested to Contacts@-my email address

I had to open the same dialogue box a 2nd time.  At the bottom I had to choose Contacts instead if chose automatically. It worked after that was done.
