My Contacts Won’t Show up in Address Book When Sending an Email in Outlook

I get the question of why my doesn’t my outlook contacts show up when sending email quite a bit so I thought I would share the solution to all that are interested. Who knows, it might even save a call to your department tech person. 

Anyway, here are the steps:
Within outlook, right mouse click on your contacts folder and select “properties”.  Click on the “Outlook Address Book” tab and check the “Show this folder as an email Address Book” option.  Your address book will then show up when sending emails.

 There you go… Happy emailing
