Cannot get a live checkbox in contact list properties to make available in Outlook 2010 Address List.

Then list the steps you used to create your problem. I suspect you migrated your Outlook data incorrectly. Since we have no idea what you did, it makes it rather diffucult for us to tell you what you did wrong.Russ Valentine

Loaded Outlook 2010 and pulled Outlook data from the .pst file. Outlook recognizes my two sets of contact data Personal and Hotmail.

If you have Contacts in the Contacts folder but they are not accessible when you click on the To button, check these settings:

Make sure the Contact folder is enabled as an email address book. Right click the Contacts folder, choose Properties then Outlook Address Book. Is the box to enable as email address book is checked?

If this is grayed out... and you are using Outlook 2007 or 2010 and the the checkbox is grayed, you'll need to make a new profile as you can't add the Outlook Address Book service due to a bug.

It is grayed out, how do you make a new profile and keep the contacts?

Along with the steps suggested by Diane"s, ensure the "Name only" option is selected in the Address Book.

In Outlook Address Book the "Name only" option is available besides Search.

Note: To view the contacts in the Address Book, the contact(s) must include an email address.
