Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible to change the default email address book to save contacts?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best,

I can read the question several different ways so I'm not sure this answer will actually answer your question. :) The only way to change the default contacts folder is by changing the default data file. This is the folder that is used if an account doesn't have a contacts folder in the data file the account is using. If there is a contacts folder in an account's data file, contacts created when viewing those folders will go into the account's own contact folder.
