Why can't I send a message to someone in my Personal Address Book.



  • 1. How do I restore the capability to ADD TO PAB by right clicking o.
    After converting Office 2000 to Office 2003 I have many users who prefer to use the Personal Address Book (myself included). How do I restore the capability to ADD TO PAB by right clicking on an email address within an email recieved within Outlook 2003? Words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
  • 2. Contacts: name (E-mail) and name (Fax) ... Why?
    I have updated my home/office with a new computer for the past 4 years and used my Office 2000 premium each time without any issues until this last update. I moved from a cmoputer with XP Pro to XP Home and imported my xxx.pst file as I have each time I changed computers. This time my contact list shows the addresses as: name (E-mail) name (Fax) Plus it will not work with my Outlook Calendar at work, when I try to send a scheduled meeting notice or note between my home/office Outlook Calendar and my work Outlook Calendar. What did I do to my contact list this time that is different from the other three times I up-dated? Larry

  • 4. Excel field -Nickname- not importing
    In my Excel (2003) worksheet I have a "Nickname" column which I would like imported into my Outlook (2003 Pro Edition) contacts. When I get to Map Custom Fields dialog box, there is no Nickname field in the TO: Microsoft Outlook Contacts section. Is there a way to add this somewhere? Any help is really appreciated!!
  • 5. Outlook cannot find contact folder
    Outlook 2002. Have just re-loaded all programs onto clean drive. Outlook.pst was copied from external drive to the Microsoft folder containing Outlook.pst. Everything is fine except when I try to access the Address List I get the message "The address list could not be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened ...." When the Address Book opens there are 2 contact lists - one empty and one with my data. Also selecting To: to start an e-mail bring up same error message. Please advise. Thanks Glyn

I am currently getting my email in Outlook via Army Knowledge Online.  I have 
added email addresses to my Personal Address Book, as well as my Contacts 

When I try to compose a new message, the Contacts list doesn't come up, just 
the PAB.  However, when I address a message to someone in the PAB, the 
message will not be sent.  I instantly get a message back that says the email 
could not be sent because " None of your e-mail accounts could send to this 
What does this mean?  How do I get the same listing of addresses in the PAB 
and Contacts?  And how can I send a message to someone in my PAB?

The Personal Address Book is long obsolete and you should be using your 
COntacts folder exclusively.

Right-click the Contacts folder, choose Properties, select the Outlook 
Address Book tab and check the box labeled "Show this folder as an e-mail 
Address Book".

Outlook has not used a PAB for many years. Neither should you. PAB's are no 
longer supported.
Use your Contacts and the Outlook Address Book instead:
