Combining contacts and my address book info?

Not open for further replies.


I have 700 contacts with info and I have 800 in my address book. Many are not the same and I want one source with all.


I also have a problem with multiple lists under my "address book." When I click on Address Book, in the pull down menu I have four different listings, two that say "Contacts" and two that say "suggested contact." How can I combine all of these into one?

The Outlook Address Book view is simply showing you the Contact Folders you have created in your Outlook profile. You are free to combine and organize Contact Folders however you wish, but you do that in your Contacts view, not the address book view. Sounds like you need to decide you want to do that and then do it.
