I have addresses in my contacts folder in outlook but when I come to send an email and click on the "TO:" button there are no email contacts to choose from. Somehow my email is set up to use an address boko other than my outlook contacts. Can someone please advise how to change the set up?

Thanks

Hi agards;
See if the following link helps you out. Scroll down to "Adding the Personal Address Book or Outlook Address Book service". It's for Outlook 2002. Perhaps you can change your settings there.
http://www.it.cmich.edu/quickguides/qg_outlook_addressbooks.asp

"On the desktop, select Start > Settings > Control Panel.
Double-click the Mail or Mail and Fax icon.
Click the Email Accounts button.
Select View or change existing directory or address books".
