Two contact lists in address book

Not open for further replies.


When I create a new email and click the "TO" button under the address book tab there are two "contact" lists. One has one entry and the other has the complete address book. How do I delete the small contact list? There look to be labled the same.

Switch Outlook to the Contacts Navigation (CTRL+3). Do you see 2 Contact folders here? If they are part of the same mailbox, you can delete the non-default one.

Otherwise, right click on the folder that you do not want listed in your Address Book and choose Properties. Switch to the Outlook Address Book tab and disable its option.
