How do I select the Default Contacts list to use in O365

Have a client that is using Office 365 to download to Outlook 2013

Current Config:
alpha@cjoego.com
beta@cjoego.com
Charlie@cjoego.com

Henry@sillyme.com
April@sillyme.com

They wish to use the Charlie@cjoego.com contacts list as default list when
they click the To: button when sending an email.

How do I accomplish this?

The contact list will likely only be apvailable to those who are using the outlook within the portal,
In outlook pushing this info might be possible using a USER GPO.

Not clear the distinction you are making.

the default is always the off-line global contacts list

I think what you are looking for is the "Always use the default account when composing messages" option under File -> Options -> Mail -> Send Messages. In addition, you can change the default list by clicking the Address book button, Tools, Options and adjusting the selection there.
