Confused on how to setup. I have Outlook 2007 and WLM and installed the outlook connector. I would like to have ONE list of contacts or addresses that I can use with MS OFFice 2007, Outlook 2007 and WLM. After I installed the connector In Outlook 2007, it looks like I have two groups under under contacts in 2007. One is called Contacts and the other is called Contacts with my email address bedside it. I can at least see and use both in outlook 2007. But in WLM only the one called Contacts with my email address beside it. And in MS Word I can only see the other one. Can I just have just one simple address book or contact list that I can use with Outlook 2007 and MS word 2007. Can I also use the same simple one with WLM. Thanks for any help

Right click on the contacts folder you don't see in work, then choose properties. Look on the Outlook Address book tab. Is the box checked to use it as an address book?

Do you only have the outlook.com account in Outlook? If so, you can remove the data file that is not used by the connector. Tools, Account settings to check your accounts. Select the Data files tab, then the data file you want to remove then click Remove.

With your help thought I had finally got it all figured out and working, Have spent about 3 hours on what should be a simple address book. All of this used to be so simple with outlook express and Word 2000. With Office 2007 it does not seem like Outlook and Word work well together. I NOW can have one address list. With Wood 2007 it takes about 5 steps each time to just see the list of contacts but I can at least see them. But if I try to add one thru Word 2007 its a nightmare. Not easy to find how to add one. Tried help files and even goggle. I go to add a new one with word 2007 it says working and just keeps running. After 5 minutes I try to X out and it will not let me. I choose force word to shut down. Then I have to start word all over again, but it does add the new contact. It is much faster to start outlook and add a new contact to that before you type a letter with a new contact you want to save. It cant need to be this complicated.

Ok this is what I figured out after a couple more hours and reinstalling MSOFFICE. After so many failed shutdowns with word it caused a problem. The problems start if you remove the data file that is not used by the connector. Which was called Personal Folders Outlook.pst. Also Word will work and allow you to add a new contact if you don't delete this. But it only works with adding a new contact with word to the original outlook contact list. You cant add a new contact with word if you are adding to the second contact list which was added to outlook from WLM with the outlook connector. It seems you are stuck with two contact list if you want to use Outlook 2007, WLM and MSword. If you try to delete the address book that comes with outlook 2007 this causes problems. And its the only one that really works with Word. It seems the connector should be able to download your contacts and add them to the Outlook contact list. Instead it wants to make a separate list with the new contacts in them. It seems the only solution is to don't use outlook connector. Manually copy contact info to outlooks contacts so you have only one address book. Then only use WLM to check junk email since that never gets to Outlook 2007. All this acts like the three programs are made by three different companies.
