Trying to build a small contact list from my main contact list in Outlook 2016 . It seems that all my contacts (for the list) are being handled by Outlook.com. The names, titles, etc. that I picked from the Contacts menu of 2016 are all present in Outlook.com (not all my contacts. Just what I tried to turn into a list.)
What's happening?

How many accounts are in your profile and which data file is set as default? If you have an outlook.com account, it's data file is default and new contacts will go into it. If you have another data file with contacts, you can move or copy the contacts to it.

FWIW, having the contacts in outlook.com isn't a big deal - and if you have an imap account, better than using a 'this computer only' folder.
