Contact Folder / Address Book problem


A

Alex Kazura

A user in a remote office has an unusual problem. Contacts and contact lists
show in the address book, but not in the Contacts folder. If you select a
contact in the address book and try to add it to Contacts, it says that the
contact already exists. If you search for the contact in Contacts, the search
comes up empty. This is Outlook 2007 with an Exchange 2003 mailbox. There are
no personal folders configured. Any ideas or suggestions?

I double checked it. The Contacts folder is there in the folder list. It
opens ok. There is nothing in the top level view, except for one subfolder.
That folder has contacts in it, but the rest of the folders do not show. I
checked her mailbox from my location, using a different machine. The missing
contacts do not show there at all, even in th address book. The only place we
can find the contacts is on the one machine, and only in the address book.

So if you go to Folder list (ctrl+6) you don't see the contacts folder? Did
you try a new profile?

on the machine where you do see them - go to the folder list and find out
where they are. If there is only 1 contacts folder on that machine, check
the profile for a PAB.

They don't show up anywhere in the folder list. There are no .pab files either.
