Outlook Contacts not showing up in Tree/Folder view (Outlook 2007)

Q: Outlook Contacts not showing up in Tree/Folder view (Outlook 2007)

Hello all:

First time poster.

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.

I can access my Contacts via the big tab at the bottom but I want the tree/folder view as it broke up the hierarachy very nicely.

Any ideas?

Thanx in advance,

--d.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I import the 251 contacts that exist in my Contacts folder into Outlook 2007?
When I drag all of them into Outlook contacts they create a single contact.

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!

It's probably my fault since most things are. Yesterday I had trouble sending email. I looked in the add-ins and saw the COM addin for Microsoft Hotmail connector. Well, I couldn't find where to delete it and so I went to c:\Progra~2\common~1\system\msmapi\msncon32.dll and deleted that. I did a bad thing, didn't I? This morning my Personal Folder in Outlook Contacts, is gone.

How can I get it back?

I did a system restore but the Personal Folder in Contacts Outlook 2007 is not there. The add-in is.

I'd try Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download - http://www.piriform.com/recuva .

I used it a day ago when I inadvertently hit the Delete button, rather than Rename on a file I wanted (I delete without using the Recycle Bin) and it worked perfectly, restored the file to original location.

Server - Exchange 2010
Client - Outlook 2007- Cached Mode

I have one user who will receive a warning email, per our storage quotas, that his Mailbox is getting close to being over its limit. Our Exchange Server's storage quota for this user is set to send a warning email at 300MB. When I look at his Mailbox on the serve, the size is reported at 308MB. When I look at the folder size in Outlook, the Mailbox size is also reported as 308MB, with 288MB of that used by the Outbox.

There are NO messages displayed in the Outbox, and all mail is being sent without any issues. I've seen some solutions for similar issues on this site, and on other sites, but I really can't apply those as they all reference deleting messages from the Outbox. I see NO messages in the Outbox, yet it still reports as taking 288MB of space.

We've purchased a new laptop and are using Office 07 now, Windows XP, instead of the old office 03. Regarding Outlook, when I tried to save the old .pst file(Outlook 03) and then import old emails and contacts, the emails imported very easily into Outlook 07. However, none of the contacts were imported. Is there a simple way to export or save Outlook 2003 contacts to a file that can then be imported into Outlook 2007 on a separate computer??

Thanks

I am so confused about where outlook 2013 keeps things.

I have installed Outlook 2013 and would like to import my contacts from my outlook 2007 in another computer. I have already prepared the contacts.pst file from outlook 2007 and made it available in my public folders. I then imported the .pst file into Outlook 2013 via network. However the contacts shows up as a separate contact list rather than integrated into the outlook 2013 address book . How to correct it?

I must have got the process wrong.

Thanks

Hi,
I probably have thousands of emails neatly filed in various folders in Outlook Express.

I need to keep all these emails but want to 'trim down' the content in OE.
But then I also need to be able to access any that I remove from OE.

Can you think of a way to 'lighten' my OE folder tree/emails, but also be able to get fairly quick access to my older emails, in an organised manner?
(ie. without searching an archive for possible Subject or content words)

Any ideas greatfully received!

We use Outlook 98 (tried upgrading to 2000, but had problems - but that's another post!)

On a small LAN, one user set up a contacts list, which we all share and edit as needed. That's been working just fine. However, another user was trying to change their display of these contacts so that an extra line of information (fax #'s) would show up on the initial window. Gave up on that idea and we're not sure what happened, but now her contacts won't display at all. When she selects contacts, the right side of the screen just says "unable to display the folder." You can see that tool bar items are missing on the top, too. It's gotta be something with her view or display, because everyone else's PC is OK. We tried re-installing Outlook and that didn't help.

Any ideas?

You will probably have to delete her profile. The rules for her alone are in her profile.

When she added the line she changed her rules and they do not match the rest. If you set up a new profile for her then you should be able to import the rules for her so they are the same as the server.

You might be able to import the rules and that alone may work.

Hello All,
 
I have an issue with an employee's Outlook Contacts.
I imported her contacts from and Excel file into her Outlook profile.
Once imported, I noticed that for one, there are duplicates even when the option is checked not to include/import duplicates.
Also, the last name is showing first instead of vice verse for half of the contacts but the other half is first then last.
The employee wants all of them to show as first then last and I have checked all of the settings (that I know of) to allow this option to be enabled.
 
Any ideas on this one?

Hi

A while ago I started using Outlook 2007 on another PC, (W10)
now I have a new W10 PC with Outlook 2007 installed.

I use Hotmail for my email address and have set up Outlook 2007 on the new PC.

I had a lot of trouble getting my Hotmail Contacts working in Outlook 2007 on my other PC and do not recall all the steps that I used, however I do have Outlook/Contacts working well on the other PC so I am hoping that all I have to do is copy a folder from the other PC and that my new PC will have Outlook 2007 contact working the same when I have done that.

Hopefully someone can tell me which folder to copy over and what settings I need in Outlook 2007.

Opens to my personal contacts (no prob). Not AMAG Contacts, but I can click on AMAG Contacts and open it OK. New emails default to the AMAG contacts OK. this Q is for whan I am opening the Contacts list.
When I click on AMAG Contacts it has a list of pictures and names.

When I open AMAG Contacts I can click >View>Change view>By Category (or whatever??)
BUT neither AMAG Contacts nor my view change is persistent. I want the changed view to be persistent across closing O2013 and reopening it

1. Is there a way to default to AMAG contacts when opening contacts?
2. Is there a way to make my view of choice persistent? I like the Category view.

I cannot find any dialog that allows me to do the above.
Several others in the building have asked the same question and I think the older versions are more straightforward and controllable.
Can this be done? I perused Outlook options and saw nothing there either.
Pls advise

I'm no expert on Outlook 2007 and only use Outlook 2010 at work. I don't have it on my home machine.

If you want to take a look at and edit the list of auto-complete email address stored try:

The data is stored in that list and it's not the same as where your contacts are saved. (As far as I know).

What seems to have happened is that all formatting has been lost, i.e. phone number format, categorisation, layout, the lot! It seems to have resorted to a copy held somewhere that is about 10 days old.

ATTEMPTED SOLUTION - Even a tw*t wouldn't be thought crazy if he tried to simply copy them back, but no go; it copies back only the most basic information.

PLEASE; IF YOU KNOW IF THERE'S A WAY FOR ME TO RECOVER THE OLD FORMATTED DATA AND KEEP IT IN 'CONTACTS'; I'LL PROMISE TO GO REGULARLY TO 'TW*T REHABILITATION SCHOOL'!

Ever since I upgraded to MS office 2007 and used Outlook 2007, I have been having a series of weird problems. Contacts seemed to be filed randomly rather than alphabetically. When I try to save a new contact, I get a message saying that the File As field is empty, even though it is clearly filled. Trying to open old saved contacts sometimes produced a message saying that the "message has not been downloaded."
I sync Outlook with a Palm Treo 700p and the contacts work fine on the Palm. Since I switched to an iPhone, some of the contact information (phone #s, email addresses) don't carry over to the phone.

On computer1, I have successfully created a customized form with user-define fields in Outlook 2007 and a merge document in Word 2007 that works (starting the merge from Outlook 2007). I want to copy the custom form with the user-define fields and the merge document to a second computer (computer2).

I saved the custom form with fields from computer1 to a *.fdm file using the Tools, Options, Other, Advanced Options, Custom Forms, Manage forms. On computer2 I used the same process to install the custom form file (*.fdm) into Outlook 2007 and created a new contact folder that uses the form and displays/adds new contact records correctly. I also copied the Word merge document to computer2. Computer1 and computer2 both have Office 2007.

All the problems occur on computer2. First, when I attempted to merge (starting in Outlook 2007), Word gave messages that all my user-defined fields did NOT exist in the database although I could see them in the Contact records. I attempted to create a new document and the user-define fields do NOT show up in the Word merge field list either.

On computer2, I created from scratch a new contacts folder with a new custom form and user-define fields which works when merging. Therefore, the problem seems to be that Word can not see the fields I created from the *.fdm file I installed.

Can anyone please help me with this? Thank you in advance.

I am trying to share an Outlook 2007 Contacts folder in order to print envelopes from a list of about 500 addresses through Word. When the "sharee" right clicks the folder and selects Properties, there is no tab called "Outlook Address Book," thus making the option to "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is unavailable. 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?
