Microsoft Outlook – adding contact lists to the Address Book

When you are trying to address an email and click the To button, the Select Names dialog box displays with a dropdown list in the Address Book area, usually showing the Global Address Book and various other contact folders. At a client site recently, they had various contact folders that were not showing up on the dropdown list.

To add to the list, right-click on the Contact folder, then click Properties, click Outlook Address Book, then put a tick by Show this folder as an email Address Book. Click OK.
