Solved: Outlook 2003 dowes not automatically pull address from address book for email

Q: Solved: Outlook 2003 dowes not automatically pull address from address book for email

I am using Outlook 2003 and run Windows XP.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list. I would like to be able to do it withot the extra step.

Hello,I am having a problem with my email not working correctly. I can receive email but when I try to create a new email and click on my address book the mouse icon disappears off to the right hand side of the screen. The program appears unresponsive as I am unable to select any tool bar icons (shows no indication that I clicked on anything) nor am I able to close the untitled message screen or minimize it. I have opened task manager and selected end task :untitled message. When that task ends it switches back to the inbox screen with a : Select Names window in the task bar. At this point the Inbox screen is still unresponsive but now I can right click the : Select Names window in the task bar and close it. When that closes then the Inbox screen seems to restore control. I have updated Microsoft Office to service pack 3 ( after this situation presented itself).The O.S. is X.P. Pro Microsoft Outlook 2003 This system has been running problem free for about 1 year. If anyone could help in solving this issue I would greatly appreciate it.Thank You.~Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

A:Outlook 2003 Address Book/new Email Problem

Hello to all,

I have resolved my issue with address book. It appears that my address book was opening up off screen on the right hand side. I am not sure what had changed in regards to why it had opened off screen or why it now has restored to the middle of the screen. The only thing that I had done recently was to send an email to a friend and typed in the email address then clicked send. After that when I tried to create a new email and select the address book it would open the window in view.

Basically I'm a moron but had to post the resolution to my problem anyways.

I have been unable to insert an address from my Yahoo email address book for some time now and I have decided to ask for help.

All I am doing is opening Yahoo mail and trying to compose a new email to send to someone who is already in my contacts. When I click "to:" or "insert address" my address book shows up. But when I place a check mark and try to "insert checked contacts" I go to this address on a blank page: http://us.mc1612.mail.yahoo.com/mc/kioskHandler

A:Solved: Yahoo email unable to insert address from address book

Concerning my post above: I turned on my older XP computer and I had no problem with inserting an address from the Yahoo! address book.

I compared all my settings in both computers and noticed that I had different settings relating to how pop-ups are handled. XP reminded me that the address book takes the form of a pop-up. On my Vista I had pop-ups opening up (?) in a webpage. That is the page which came up blank. After I have corrected the settings, I no longer have a problem.

I exported my address book from Outook 2003 into the Windows (XP) Address Book. This is great because then I don't have to have Outlook open to view my address book.

However, it isn't linked to my Outlook address book so that whenever I made a change to my addresses in Outlook, it'll reflect in the Windows address book.

I had that set up perfectly in my old computer (Windows 98SE) but can't get it to work in XP.

Any tips or ideas?

Hi all

I run a small business and have Outlook 2010 on both my laptop and desktop. My emails are synced via IMAP to the mail server on my web hosting server GreenGeeks. That is where my email account is, provided as part of my website hosting. My emails (inbox and Sent) sync up via IMAP when opening/using Outlook, on both machines. But I'd like to have my address book updated automatically as well, between both machines. I know that Outlook stores the address book in a file on your PC, and I also use Google Drive which provides automatic and virtually instant cloud storage of files kept in a folder on your PC..(mine is a folder on my desktop).which works great...wondering if there is a way to tell Outlook to put the address book file into this Google Drive folder instead of the default location?? That should do the trick....Any ideas or other suggestions? Thanks so much !!

I recently installed a new hard drive, but first made a backup of my Outlook PST file to reimport all my mail and contacts. Everything seems to be working fine with the exception of the address book icon on top. When I click on it, it lists two different contact folders. When I click on the first, contact folder, I get the following message: "The addressess list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened. It may have been moved or deleted or you do not have permissions." I've tried deleting the first contacts folder, but it won't delete. The second Contacts list folder does contain my contacts. Do you think it is some kind of identity or permission problem? Any suggestions.

A:Outlook 2003 Address Book

Hi LindaR0923

Right click each of the Contacts folders in Outlook:
Properties > Outlook Address Book tab
Place a check mark in: Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book
Apply, OK to save and close.

Repeat for each additional Contacts folder.​
After completing the above steps, open the Outlook Address Book:
Tools > Options
Click the drop down arrow for: Show this address list first: and select the Contacts folder you want to appear when the Outlook Address Book is opened.


If for some reason the above does not solve the problem, you may need to remove the Outlook Address Book and reinstall it.
In Outlook 2003 (with the Address Book closed):
Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing directories or address books > Next
Highlight each Address Book listed, one at a time and click the: Remove button.
Yes > Finish button.

Close and restart Outlook 2003, then add back the Outlook Address Book.
Tools > E-mail Accounts > Add a new directory or address book > Next
Select: Additional Address Books
Highlight: Outlook Address Book
Next > OK

Close and restart Outlook 2003.​

You may need to repeat these steps:
Right click each of the Contacts folders in Outlook:
Properties > Outlook Address Book tab
Place a check mark in: Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book
Apply, OK to save and close.

Repeat for each additional Contacts folder.... Read more

I have been given an address book to maintain. I've pretty much figured out everything as far as setting up new contacts and groups but I do need some assistance.

This organization allows members of a certain level to obtain an @thiscompany.org alias address.

What the assignment of that address does is only forward to the members real email account.

Since I've just gotten involved, I need a way to do a reverse look up.

ie. [email protected] how do I find out who that belongs to, like a cross reference to the members name and real email address.

Is there a way to do this?

Hu Guys - and Happy New Year

I had to get a new computer - the old one crashed (I think I may have inadvertantly deleted a .dll file!). I was able to install the Old hard drive (which will not boot) in the new computer - so at least I have all my old files stored and have been able to transfer many to the new hard drive.

The new unit came with WinXP - and I installed MS Office 2003.
I used to use Outlook Express (in Win98) and liked the fact that I could organize my list of e-mail addresses into folders. I am now using OUTLOOK as my e-mail client and can't figure out how to organize the address book. I tried importing the old address book from Express with no luck. CAN I ORGANIZE MY E-MAIL ADDRESSES IN THE OUTLOOK ADDRESS BOOK?

Hello all. I have purchased a new laptop running Windows 7. I still run Office 2003 and Outlook 2003. I use it as my front end to a web based mail service. I have installed Office 2003 with SP3 and it is all patched and matches the system that I am moving from.

The issue this time is that I see my emails and I see my contacts, but when I open a new message or respond to an old message and hit the TO or CC or BCC, I get the error that says “The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved….”

There are no PAB files and I ran scanpst.exe on the PST file.

How do I repair this or make this work?

I have a friend with a new Dell - I installed Office with Outlook 2003 and put on SP3 for Office. I started it up and than closed out of it and moved the PST file from the old system to the new system and replaced the PST file that was there on the new system.

He told me that most of his addressed where in the Address Book - which I am clueless on. In my outlook everythingin in Contacts.

Anyway, while some of the contacts are there and ton are missing so I looked on my system to find out about the Personal Address Book and figured out it was a .PAB file so I than copied that over to Outlook and it still did not seems to work. So that I tried to import it and I get the following error:

I recently changed an email address in Outlook. This address is included in a distribution list (MAPIPDL). However, when I sent out an email using this distribution list, it went back and used the old email address.

I went in and totally deleted the distribution list and the address of the recipient and then re-entered their address using wife's name first rather than husband's name first, thinking that might confuse it enough to use the corrected email. However, when I sent something out again using this distribution list, it went back and used the same old email address for this recipient.

There is no trace of that old email address left in the address book and I am dumbfounded as to how to get this corrected.

Thank you for your help.

What happens if you remove them from the "D" list and send an email out using it? As a last means delete them from your address book close Outlook then reopen it and add them back as a new contact. Open the distribution list and add their contact to the list and see what happens. Outlook picks the email address's from whatever is in the email area of the contacts details, so double check these details through the Contacts folder, rather than through the Distribution List.

When the Outlook Address Book service has already been added and the option to select the Contacts folder as an Outlook Address Book is still disabled and greyed out, it means that the Outlook Address Book service is corrupted.
To fix this you can remove the Outlook Address Book service, restart Outlook, and then add it again as indicated by the steps above.
Sadly this workaround will not work in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 as removing the Outlook Address Book service is not supported in these versions. In this case, you must recreate your mail profile.
(Re)creating a mail profile
Once you?ve located and opened the Mail applet, you can recreate your mail profile via the following steps:

- Do NOT use Copy? not even when you want to recreate your mail profile or you?ll end up copying the corruption as well.

I took (using my memory stick) a copy of my PST file and my PAB file from the server at my work (each client PC at work has Outlook 2000 on it) and imported it into Outlook 2003 on my laptop at home. It was the first time that I used the Outlook 2003 on my laptop, because I don’t use it to send and receive any email, so an email account doesn’t exist on it. The PST and PAB files are in the default storage folder C:\Documents and Settings\XXXXXX\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. When I click on the little book icon on the toolbar (like I do at work), the address book is empty in Outlook 2003. What am I not doing correctly, please anyone? The emails part of it works fine: I can read them, etc.

Thanks in advance.

I've got an idea that I want to use, but I'm not sure if it's workable. Here's my situation:

The company that I work for has added a desktop faxing software. It can use Outlooks Contacts to get fax numbers to send to so long as the Business Fax field is filled in with the correct fax number. What I've done is setup a Public Folder with all of these contacts in it (note, the list updates weekly). There's not a problem having my desktop users see it because we just turn on the option in Outlook to show that folder as an address book. The problem we run into are those users that are using OWA web access for their box. I have not found a way to include that Public Folder in an Address Book that they can access from the web. All it offers is Global Address List and Contacts to search from.

Please let me know if any of you had any ideas.

When multiple accounts are added on Outlook 2010 and you create a new email, autocomplete in the 'to' field shows suggestions from every account. Is it possible to only show suggestions relevant to the account the email is being sent from.

For example, if I had my personal account and a customer services account, when I go to send an email from my personal account, every email address who has ever communicated with the customer services account shows which is quite risky.

Thanks, Louise

I have used Eudora for many years and I'm now switching to Outlook 2003. I have about 200 addresses in Eudora and it has no export option. I have managed to get all the names and addresses into a comma delimited file by doing a manual search and replace. Here's the format:

FirstName,,LastName,,[email protected]

I did all of this on the assumption Outlook had a way to import a comma delimited text file into its address book. But, alas, I don't see any way to do it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I don't mind abandoning this method for another if need be.

A:Import Comma-delimited Text File into Outlook 2003 Address Book?

I was just looking at a site for making a backup of Eudora's Address Book.

Try Exporting the Contacts folder in Outlook, as a .csv file, first.
Then add the contacts from the Eudora Address Book to the .csv file and Import the .csv file back into the Contacts folder in Outlook

I have a bunch of email messages that went to a specific folder in my address book. Now I need to get the email addresses for these messages. I can't do it manually. There are a lot of them.

How can I get a list or database that would have the email addresses?

I work for a Non-profit organization and receive many emails. I was used to "Outlook Express" which automatically added all incoming email addresses to my address book.

But, apparently Outlook 2010 does not offer that option, or it's a complex process.

Is there an easy way to do this?
