Outlook address book

I am trying to export an address book from outlook express and import it into Outlook 2003.  It seems to work.  When I look in contacts everything is there.  If I go to email somebody and in the to: field I use the address book the address book is empty.  Any ideas?

PLease check it here if this can solve your problem.

Probably you just have to choose your default address book.

If this doesn´t solve your problem let us know.

Is address book config a command line command?  If so it did not do anything.  If I look at the address book under tools and address book where you can set the default book contacts is the default it says it is looking at but it is still empty.  I have done a search for contacts on the drive and I only come up with the pab file I created when exporting outlook express contacts.

No its  not a command line.

Can you see if this is similar to your problem ->Outlook 2003 address list not displaying Contacts on Email

Let us know

Is this how you exported the OE address book to Outlook 2003?

If not try it.

The knowledge base fix seemed to work.  To be honest I can swear I already did all this.  I guess if it doesnt work once and there is nothing else, try again
