Address book contacts not listed in "Select Names:Contacts" window

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Email Account
Windows XP Pro, Outlook 2007. This concerns contacts in address book. All of my contacts are listed in the Outlook address book and appear when I click on the address book icon. However, when I am about to send a new email message, click on “New” and then click on “To” in the new message window, up comes the “Select Names: Contacts” window WITHOUT the list of contacts but instead, “Type your search keywords and click Go to perform a search”. This occurred suddenly. In the past, the list of contacts has always appeared in the “Select Names Contacts window”. I cannot find anything in the Outlook 2007 options to change back to the way it was with Contacts appearing in the Select names window. Any suggestions?
Above the Search field are two radio buttons - do you have More Columns selected? Name only will show all contacts.

A screenshot of the dialog is at outlook's address book search if you need one.
