I am experiencing the following problem(s) in Outlook 2010 32-bit

  1. I cannot get a downloaded vCard from the internet to save to my “contacts” (NOTE: I have more than one “Contacts)
  2. I need to set up outlook to look in a specific “contacts” file (given that there are two)
  3. I am having a problem with how a contact is displayed when I create a new mail

Outlook 2010 32-bit Overview

  • I originally had a single e-mail address in Outlook and therefore a single “contacts” list/file
  • I added other e-mail addresses over time
  • I did not create a separate Profile, as I wanted to be able to see all the inboxes in a single view at the same time (so that I could see if I had new e-mails in any of the 4 inboxes.
  • I migrated from rogerst@eircom.net (my original account) to tommyrogers1954@yahoo.com (my new main account). When I did this, I simply did a “copy folder” from the old to the new.
  • However, when I save, for example, a new vCard from an internet page, it saves the contact to the old contacts folder.
  • I ideally want to delete the contacts folder from the old account and rely on the new one only, but I firstly want to be sure that new contacts will save there.

The attachments will show all the details. It looks complicated, but it works fine for me. If there is a better way to overall manage my requirements, I would be happy to change.

It sounds like the old pst is set as default - look in File, Account Settings, Data File tab. Set the yahoo account's data file as default.

For the address book, click the Tools menu in the address screenshot and choose Options. Change the contacts that shows up first in that dialog.
