Solved: No Contacts folder in Personal Folder Microsoft Outlook

Q: Solved: No Contacts folder in Personal Folder Microsoft Outlook

I had a crash and the operating system had to be restored non-destructively. The backup operation saved the Microsoft Outlook .pst file. I have now recovered all the e-mails but the Contacts folder is "empty" when looking for an address. The Contacts folder (as well as the Calendar folder) also does not appear in the list of folders in the Navigation Pane. If I attempt to export a comma separated file (DOS) from the Personal Folders, the "Contacts" folder appears in the window when browsing for the folder to export. If I export that file, all the contacts are there complete with all the addresses when viewed as an Excel file. Any suggestions on how to integrate the contacts into the Personal folder without having to recreate a contact file manually from the Excel file? Cheers, Wondering Willy

Hello,
As I left my previous employer, the IT manager exported my contacts into a .pst file. I used Outlook 2003 at work. When I go to import the file at home (also OL '03), it comes in as a personal folder (email folder?) and is empty. The file itself is ~250k so I know it's not empty. How can I import my contacts into Outlook on my home computer?

Thanks,

I'm trying to copy (not move) a category of contacts in my contacts folder in Outlook to a subfolder. Is this possible? (Please note that the contacts in this category are also in other categories as well, if that makes a difference.) It's not giving me the option to copy unless I copy the entire contacts folder, which I was going to do and then just delete the contacts I didn't want, but it won't let me copy all my contacts to a subfolder. Help!

Hello,
To start off the computer in question is running Windows XP and Microsoft office 2007. I am in the process of resolving this issue as stated in the title that the user did not come across until recently when Outlook had locked up on him and he was forced to improperly close it down. The problem im coming across is that everytime he starts outlook it takes the system around 45 minutes just to analyze the data file all the while not being able to do anything at all in Outlook. The long loadup time I understand because he has an amazing 81,000 emails. The problem arises after the check is finally completed, Outlook opens and as soon as I attempt to erase files immediately, he begins receiving the emails that he has missed out on for the past week which is around 150 MB. This in turn causes Outlook to lockup for some unknown reason and became a vicious cycle. We then opened up outlook in safe mode and deleted about 60,000 emails, then reopened outlook and managed to receive a few days of missed emails. During this process it locked up again and we are back at step one and waiting for it to analyze the data file which is actually taking longer than previously stated when the file was much larger. Any suggestions would be great, I've done a lot of searching around and couldn't find an answer I found sufficient to my own personal problem. I have always had success asking you guys here so thanks ahead of time for anything that you can contribute.

A:Importing contacts from the Contacts folder into Outlook 2007

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

In the folder/tree view on the left in Outlook 2007 (Windows XP Pro) the Contacts folder is not showing up.

In Outlook 2003, it was right there underneath Calendar, which, by the way, is also missing from the Folder/Tree view.

Any ideas?

What you need to do is in office 2003 you need to make an office 97-2000 compatible personal folder file move all your emails from the frist personal folder to the 97-2000 compatible one and then copy it to the PC with Office XP.

Outlook 2003 PST's added new code in them that are no longer backward compatible so you need to circumvent this by only using Outlook 97-2000 PST's.

Does anyone know a way to have the IMAP account as the default .pst (Personal Folder) in outlook instead of having 2?

A:IMAP Personal Folder In Outlook

Hi dztraw, welcome to TSG. As I understand it (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong), the IMAP pst is a temporary file that is used when opening Outlook, so it cannot be the default pst. In addition, the IMAP pst contains only mail items - not calendar, contacts, etc. It looks like there's third-party software that might change that, but I don't know how well it works. Search for "insight connector" if you need more information. Hope that helps.

Hi,

I just bought a new computer with Win 7 and I installed Office 2010.
I also have an older laptop with Win XP, I reformatted the HD then installed Office 2010 (same CD).
In the desktop I have "personal folders" then all my different email addresses within ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected] etc...). In the laptop (with XP), there is no personal folder, so depending on the email address the mails are sent to I have to look for them.

I compared both OL, everything is set the same way in both computers, just in the laptop the "personal folder" is missing, and I see no way to add it. I looked in MS help, and I see there is a "backup personal folder" to install with XP, but before making any mistake (and being in more trouble), I would like to ask for help.

Can anyone help me please?

If you have XP or other versions of Windows that isn't set up to share Outlook's address book in Outlook Express and the WAB address book (that can be opened separately from Accessories), there is a way to enable this with a few easy revisions in the registry. I just tried it and it worked beautifully!

A while back, I complained here because I upgraded to XP Professional from Windows 98SE. While that was a big step up, I lost certain features that I had in 98, like the ability to share the address book (that I can open without having Outlook or OE open) with Outlook, rather than OE.

But now there is a way, thanks to the following article.

http://www.insideoe.com/files/wab.htm#share

(To edit the registry, you open Run and then type Regedit. Then follow the steps in the article.)
 

A:Sharing the Contacts folder in Outlook

It looks like what this does is displays Outlook's Contacts in the Contacts in Outlook.

But just note a change. If you add contacts in Outlook Express after the registry change is done via the Contacts pane, they don't show up in Contacts. You can only see the ones you added from the Addresses icon.

On the plus side, they do get automatically added to your Outlook Contact list.

Apparently, there was a work-around for Outlook 2003, but it clearly states that it will not work in Outlook 2007.

I need to have more than one person with the ability to maintain this address book, but certainly not everyone that would see it through the Exchange server as a global folder. Can this shared folder be made available as an e-mail address book, or is my only option a public or global folder? Can the editing capability for the public or global folder be designated, and to more than one user? And restricted to other users?

Help please!

I managed to import my contacts list from Outlook on windowsXP on my old laptop to Outlook on Vista on my new laptop. The imported list of contacts is in a sub folder I created to "Contacts" (I wanted to keep the list separate in case there were any problems).

Now I know the data has transferred fine, how do I now transfer the list from the sub folder to the main Contacts folder? I need to do that as that seems to be the only way to access the data in the sub folder for a mail merge I am doing. I can't find any other way to access the subfolder data when creating the mail merge.

Similarly, when I try and copy the data in that subfolder to MAccess, I can't get into that subfolder, only the main Contacts folder, so it seems that is where Vista needs the data to be!

Last winter I did a mass mailing from a folder in the "Contacts" section called "Companies".

Recently, I wanted to do another mailing so I went into the "Contacts" section but the folder "Companies" was not there. Other folders in "Contacts" were there but not that one. How it disappeared I do not know.

When I go into the "Sent" section and back to last winter I can search on the name of any addressee in the mass mailing and it brings up the full record as I made in the "Companies" folder. So, it is there somewhere, but I can't find it.

Also, in Outlook 2003, I can go to "Tools" and then click on "Address Book". In that section it asks me "Show names from the:" and it gives me a dron-down menu of folders in the Contacts area and "Companies" is one of the ones listed.

What I'd like to do is have a central contacts list that is updated regularly which is then downloaded automatically by each user's outlook program.

The major snag I've hit so far is removing obsolete entries without deleting the user's entire contacts folder (and any custom/personal contacts they have).

*NOTE* I am running XP and Office 2000 I am very happy with these so please DO NOT recommend that I upgrade. Thank you. *NOTE*

When I try to create the folder this comes up every time(please see attached image):

These are the instructions from here:

Create a New Personal Folder
To finish the process you need to define a new personal folder for the user. To do this, use the following steps:
On the File menu, point to New, and click Personal Folders File (.pst).
Type the name of the new Personal Folder. Verify and change the file location if necessary. Click Create. Note Do not use the name mailbox.pst.
Verify and change the information if necessary, and then click OK.
If the Folder List does not appear, on the View menu, click Folder List.
Right-click the new Personal Folders, click "Properties for <Personal Folders>", and click "Deliver POP mail to this personal folders file," click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit. Restart Outlook.
In the Folder List, right-click the Personal Folders not associated with Outlook Today, click Properties, click Advanced, and verify that the path of this file is different than the one you created in step 2. Click OK twice to close the dialogs.
In the Folder List, right-click the Personal Folders not associated with Outlook Today, and click Close "Personal Folders Name."
Click to expand...

Step 2 is the one that crashes Outlook. Is there a patch to get around this error?

Are you creating a new .pst file due to storage issues with your current .pst folder?

Were you getting any errors in Outlook before attempting to create the new .pst file?

Have you attempted to create the .pst file using the Mail applet in the Control Panel, with Outlook not running?

Ok here is an odd one:

We intermittently have problems with some of our users. A visitor will come from one site to another login open outlook and they will see their emails disappear.

What is actually happening is that a personal folder has automatically been created and the 'deliver new e-mail to the following location' has changed from Mailbox - username to Personal Folders. Within Outlook two mailboxes appear one being the User's the other the personal folder and all mail has been transfered the personal folders.

The personal folders is stored as a local PST file. So to resolve the issue really isnt a problem. Change the Deliver location back to the User's mailbox. Copy the mail back and close the personal folder.

The issue is that it happens at all. Some users dont notice that the mail has transfered to a local pst and when they go to another PC they appear to have lost all emails!! Recently this has happened where the emails appear to disappear in the same way yet they are not in the local pst, deleted items, permanently deleted items or any other archive files on the PC or network!

This does not appear to be related to autoarhcive as we have it disabled on the PCs. I dont know if there could be a server setting somewhere that could cause this.

The difficulty in resolving this issue is that it does not happen all the time for every person even on the same visitor PC!

Help!!

Hi,
I've been struggling for a while with the public folders in outlook 2002. Our company has a separate mailbox, which public folder has several commonly shared contacts. There are already many people, who have set up this mailbox and can access, edit and send messages to these contacts.

However, I tried to set up a few new persons to use these contacts, but they cannot send messages to them. They've got permissions to the mailbox, they can add and modify contacts and contact groups, but when I select a contact and click "new message to contact" (or something like it), it shows up in the recipient area as only text, not as underlined text indicating a valid contact. And when I try to send the message, it says that the recipient is not recognized etc. For testing, I added the mailbox for my personal account at the same time and I can use the contacts normally, these other two new persons don't. Only difference with us is that my account has a bit more permissions since I'm in the IT-dept, but others successfully using the mailbox are just normal users as well.

Does anyone have ideas what to do? Is there still some setting I could've overlooked? And as a second question, how can I send a message to several contacts in the public folder?

thanks for any help,
--patrik

I am having an issue with my contacts in Outlook 2003. Whenever i click on a "contacts" link (to add an email address) it pops up an error, and tells me to look in the help file. I have looked through the help file and i have been unable to find anything about it. Here is a screenshot of what it looks like:


Where is the setting for this? I've looked all over the program!

Thanks

After working perfectly, Outlook will no longer respond to search for entries in the Contacts folders from the empty box where one normally enters a contact name.

I have run "repair Office 2000 Professional," uninstalled and resinstalled, but I am unable to run a search for a contact except by using the Find Feature.

The change seemed to have occured when I synched my laptop to my PC. (The PC works fine, the problem occurs only on the laptop).

As the search contacts is a critical function, I will appreciate a solution. Thanks!
