Outlook 2010 Contacts Search brings up multiple copies of contact

Q: Outlook 2010 Contacts Search brings up multiple copies of contact

i have troubles with my outlook 2010 contacts. The main problem is that there is no category view. I have categorized my 1000+ contacts; only one category appears in Current View. When I search for a contact, it brings up three copies of the same contact. Worst, it assigns some an extra category. I recently exported all the contacts into a csv file, deleted them from Outlook, edited the csv file carefully, and imported them back into Outlook. The Outlook file must be corrupt. Should I just start over, delete Outlook, reinstall it, make a new file from scratch, import the csv contacts file? Other ideas?

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.

I reinstalled windows and imported outlook .pst file back into outlook 2010. All show up emails and contacts, but I can't search existing contacts. If I enter a new contact and save, then a search will find the new contact. Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I am using Outlook 2010. Its searching was working fine until 3 weeks ago. I was not able to search new contacts that I added a few weeks ago. However, I could search the old contacts I added years ago. So far, I had tried to rebuild the indexing, repair Outlook and the .ost file, but they all didn't work.

I just rebuilt the indexing one more time 2 days ago. I now can search the old contacts now but not the new ones. Same problem!!!
Does anyone have any clue or solution? THANKS!!!

Outlook 2010
iPod Touch 5th Gen iOS v 6.1.3
iTunes sync via USB cable - I do NOT use iCloud

Hi All

I have 2 different profiles in my desktop Outlook. One for Personal and One for Business. On my iPod Touch, I can receive email from all my POP3 email accounts. However, for Contacts, Notes and Calendars, my Touch ONLY syncs with my Personal Outlook Profile. This means that I cannot access my Business contacts on the Touch.

I have searched for an answer to see IF I can actually sync my Touch with multiple Outlook profiles, but haven't come up with an answer.

Does anyone know if iTunes will allow a sync between the device and multiple Outlook profiles?

I have a user who is set up like everyone else on our SBS 2003 server. He is having the following problem. He goes to add a new contact in Outlook 2007 and he starts to enter the phone number. The dialer setup wizard comes up and will not let him enter any further information. He does not dial anyone from the computer. I don't know where this is coming from and I am not sure how to get it to stop. Anyone have an idean?

A:Outlook contacts brings up dialer

Are there any 3rd party plugins installed that might be causing this, such as Skype or another internet (or modem) dialer?

Also, have you scanned with malwarebytes (or your preferred anti-malware program) just to be sure it's not malware?

One other thought, in Internet Explorer, under 'Tools', 'Internet Options', 'Connections', is 'Never dial a connection' selected? It should be if the user never dials a connection. I'm guessing this is not the issue although it's worth checking.

My grandmother has a compaq running Windows ME (yes I know it stinks). It has Outlook Express version 6. She has comcast email and internet.

I have scanned it with Adaware, Spybot S&D, as well as Norton AV with updated definitions and the system is fairly clean.

From time to time when she tries to send an email to single contact, multiple people in her address book will recieve the same email.

There are a couple of things that might be a clue to the problem. About a year ago, I backed up her address book and emails and reformated then imported the account details using the process found here: http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q270670

The other thing I noticed, she has some contacts that are invalid. An example would be
[email protected]
Comcast mail server returns an error to outlook if this name is in the recipient list.

Any thoughts?

Hi, I've created a number of groups of contacts manually, entering each email address etc only under the new group I've created.

However, it seems the standard OE search only searches the main contact list, and my contacts are not in it- only in the groups.

I am hoping someone on here may be able to assist me. Over the weekend I "merged" my Outlook 2003 contact list into my Business Contact Manager. This deleted all the contacts from my Outlook list. I didn't realise at the time that BCM did not sync with devices such as the new Blackberry Bold 9700 I received today!! The problem I now have is that I don't seem to be able to copy the BCM contacts back into my Outlook list? I have tried expoting the BCM contact list into a .csv file, and then tried importing that file into Outlook but it appears the CSV file is all sorted into one column?

Is there an easy way to copy them back into Outlook so I can sync it with my phone?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

On occasion Outlook 2003 will send out multiple copies of an email. Usually this happens with email with attachments. The larger the attachment the more likely it seem to occur. I will get error messages 0x8004210B and 0x800CCOB but the sending of the messages continues. I get only one copy in my sent mail file. My server timeout is set at 10 minutes. Seems to be no real pattern as to when this occurs. One day an email with an attachment will go out as it should. The next day an email with the identical attachment will not and multiple copies are received. At some point in the sending process, things revert to normal but people have received up to 22 copies of the same message but usually it is fewer.

Hi there!
I've got yet another issue with the new Outlook (Preview): there are double folders appearing, dutch ones as well as english ones. I've tried to remove the english ones, but they keep coming back automatically! And not only that, I'm also facing to problem
that all messages in my folders seem to get duplified, triplefied or even worse: the same messages are being cloned up to thirty times! When I remove them all - except for one of course -, and empty my 'Deleted'-folder, they're all there again the next time
I open the folder concerned. Should I simply wait for an Outlook update, or is there anything I can do about this? I've never had this problem before, and it's terribly annoying!

I use Outlook 2003. I get multiple (sometimes as many as 8 or 10) copies of most e-mail messages. This is not the problem that some people have had where they delete the e-mails and then those same messages appear next time they download their mail. I get the multiple copies of new messages. I've tried turning off my virus protection but that makes no difference. Thanks for any help.

I have Windows 7. I noticed my outlook 2010 5 contact folders and when I try to send an email and click on To the only folders it shows is Contacts, Suggested contact, & Cloud Contacts. I click on Contact and no one shows up, if I go back and click on the other folders 2 of them have my contacts. It looks like the Contact folder that is empty is my main folder because it will not let me rename or delete it. The folder that is labeled exactly like it that has all my contacts and group setups will let me rename it. I have looked for a way to export those into the blank but no luck. Anyone have any suggestions. My folders are Contacts ? Contacts ? Contacts ? Suggested Contacts ? Contacts from ICloud.

Thanks for any help.

A:Outlook 2010 Contact problem

You can just drag and drop contacts into the main Contacts group, hold down shift to select multiple contacts. Then you can delete the unwanted groups. For the other groups you want to keep, right click and go to Properties, then on the Address Book tab make sure the box is checked for "Show this folder as an Email Address is checked".

A:Outlook sending multiple copies of large emails

Did the emails actually come from your system? You'll have to go through the headers to determine the actual source.
Or do they just have your email address in the From and/or Reply to fields? Not much you can do in this case, except file a complaint with the ISP the email was sent from.

Hello, in Outlook 2010 I have a large list of contacts all divided into categories with 50+ e-mail addresses each. I normally select the category and create a new e-mail for these contacts, paste a signature of text to the e-mail, copy/paste the subject and mark the e-mail with high importance and confidential. Is it possible to create a new e-mail with the categories/e-mail addresses I want to send to and upload a template to paste the e-mail text, subject, high importance and confidential? Thank you very much in advance. Kind regards, SusieSusie

A:Contact categories and use of templates in Outlook 2010

Welcome to Sevenforums, Susie!

Sure, you just create an email account, click "Send an email", select which email account to use by clicking "From", click the "To" and select the contacts from any list in any of your email accounts.

I've been using Contact Groups on previous computer, but when I moved over to my new PC and loaded Office 2010 along with Outlook, the contacts groups in OUtlook does not seem to work.

None of the groups I had before were imported, although I have imported all of the contacts themselves.

When I create a new Contact Group it seems to be fine - it allows me to create it, add some contacts, and save it. But, I go to create an email and want to use the contact group, nothing will come up as a group. Also, when I look directly into contacts folder there are no groups there.

Hi, I recently migrated from an old computer and have trouble learning the new software.
Have transferred all my many contact groups to the new outlook.
some display correctly JOHNS SMITH under name and [email protected] under the email heading.

However, some contact groups - let's call them defficient - dont, they will just display
[email protected] under BOTH the NAME and EMAIL headings.
With 50-100 names in such a group that presents a problem if I want to edit the recipients before sending a particular mail.
My address book and 'contact folder' both have the correct display of full name and email under two seperate headings.
How do I correct the settings in the defficient contact groups?
And, when I tried creating a new contact group, the same thing happened .. the display once again showed ....... [email protected] under BOTH the NAME and EMAIL headings.
Something wrong with the default settings?
Grateful for step by step instructions as I have tried to use the various HELP solutions found in outlook but have not been able to follow them. If the settings in the 'defficient groups' can't be corrected, just show me how to creat a new group which will show the desired FULL NAME in the first column and the EMAIL ADDRESS in the second.
Thanks in advance for your help!

A:Outlook 2010 + Contact group viewing

UPDATE... sort of. I did find a way, albeit a painfully slow one, to correct it one contact at a time.
open the (individual) contact
delete the email address in the 'display as' line (leave it blank)
click 'save and close' (top left)
press F5 as you are coming back to the 'list view' of the contact group
the corrected contact will now have the name in col 1 and the email adr in col 2.
UNFORTUNATELY, this only corrects THE CONTACTS IN THIS CONTACT GROUP and NOT the address book or global contact folder.
To do so, I still need to find a solution to BULK CHANGE the 'display as' line from showing the email address to showing the name

I am used to hitting "enter" in 2003 to get the next input field for an additional member to the group. I also had the keyboard shortcut of Alt D--I think it was--to do the same job.

With the new program I have to stop each time and click on +Member and answer the question of where the name is stored or if it is a new person. Since I do large mailing lists, this is endlessly frustrating and time consuming.

So, my googling skills found nothing (couldn't get the search terms specific enough, I think), so I'm throwing it out to the peanut gallery.

For purchasing in my department, I email my boss the parts, and cc his secretary. He approves the order, and she purchases the parts. I was wanting to create a contact group that sends him the email, and cc's her. Is this at all possible, and if not, can anyone think of a simple way to automate it? I know it's kind of petty, but when you send 10+ emails of this nature per day (and yes, it has to be individual emails, since they correlate to different projects/work orders), it's a saving of two seconds that's nice.

The only results it will return is a distribution list...no individual contacts are returned.

2. Unable to select contacts and organize distribution groups
When I open a distribution list and try to add a new contact, I'm only able to select our corporate address list (internal), my contacts folder (containing only distribution lists), and the stupid 'suggested contacts' list containing emails of people that i don't have organized because I don't need to keep their address)...no other lists are available.

My Outlook Express 6 is driving my colleagues crazy. It sends and resends the same message multiple times, all the while informing me that it can't send the specified message, which remains in the Outbox. Each time I open the program, it tries and "fails" to send yet again - yet in fact sends it. It informs me there was an error, but doesn't specify an error # (the error message window is blank).

Do you have an anti-spam program?

Is there an attachment included with the message?
Does this occur with all messages?
How do you connect to the Internet?

A:Outlook 2010 problem importing contacts

Do you have iCloud Contact sync enabled on your iPhone. Note that if you do, iTunes will say that contacts were synced but like in your case, no contacts will appear within your Outlook. iCloud Contact sync and Outlook sync via iTunes do not go together.

You can alternatively export your iPhone contacts to outlook using third-party tools such as copytrans contacts:

Make sure to select the Outlook option once prompted during export.

As I am thinking about getting a new cell phone to sync with Outlook, I really don't want to carry around his business contacts with me! I think I will just save his PST file until he really needs it.

Now... how can I remove his contacts I imported? If necessary I could "empty" all my contacts (if that's possible to do) and re-export/re-import my personal contacts from my old laptop.

So glad to find this Windows 7 forum! Any advice is appreciated.


A:Outlook 2010--Remove Imported Contacts?

Hi Lisa

Welcome to Seven Forums

You could try the following from Office Support:

Remove an address book

Click the File tab.
Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.

On the Address Books tab, click the address book that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

Hope this helps in some way

Saw this post in 2008 but couldn't find the answer.

I have a few contacts that I can't find in any VIEW in my contacts folder. If I think of some obscure piece of information (not the first name or last name, but perhaps something within their email address), I can get to them through the search contacts feature - so I know the contact exists.

There's one in particular that I THOUGHT I actually recreated thinking it was a record problem... is it a data problem?

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

A:Some contacts hidden/invisible in Outlook (2010)

There's a new view in 2010 - "Suggested Contacts" Apparently when I searched contacts, something could make it pop up. I found the invisible contact in Suggested Contacts, moved it over and all is good...

Thank you!

I have Office 2013 on my HP Surface Pro and it has been working fine ever since I installed it 5 months ago.  Now today when I was sending a new e-mail and click on the TO: in order to bring up my list of contacts, I do not get the contacts list but instead
get a window that is titled "Select Names: Contacts".  Type your search keywords and click "Go" to perform a search.
I can type the person's name in the search field and it pulls them up.  I then touch on To in this search window and it will then
allow me to select OK which transfers the person's e-mail address to the New Email screen.
I can't figure out what has happened.
My contact folder still contains all of my e-mail addresses but they will not pull up from the create a new email screen when you click on the TO: field while attempting to select e-mail address.
Can anyone help me?  I have tried everything I know to do.
I am using Office 2010 and my Surface Pro has Windows 8 on it but it has been working perfectly until today.

A:Office Outlook 2010 will not access contacts

First, which version of Office do you have? You start by saying you have 2013, but then at the end you say you have 2010. This is important, as there are significant changes to the user interface between 2010 and 2013. Are you using the Outlook client on the computer, or the Outlook web app? Also, are you searching for the contacts in Outlook, or are you searching using the Windows 8 search bar?
