how to save master list of contacts while changing to new pc



  • 1. Default Contacts Folder When Creating Task
    OL2003 w/ BCM running on XP. When I create a task and select 'Contacts' on the bottom-left of the form it defaults to the regular Contacts folder. In order to specify a BCM contact I have to scroll down the folder list and select BCM Contacts, then select the actual contact I want. Is there a way so it defaults to the BCM Contacts folder, not the one in my normal .pst file? Thanks. Jim

  • 3. Missing Activities
    Using the Activities tab, I often will review or search for email for a specific contact. Somewhere along the line, my Activities got lost or disconnected. I am only able to find a couple of email messages from contacts that I know I have dozens for. All my contacts exhibit the same deficit. I can find these missing messages by searching in the individual folders, so I know that they exist. I have gone into the Contacts|Properties|Activities and reviewed the settings there. There is a check on the "Personal Folders" and "search sub-folders" is also checked. I have never changed these settings, so they are set at the default. This resembles a missing or broken index problem. Is there any way to re-index my message file? Any ideas of how to solve this problem? I even used scanpst.exe. It found a errors and fixed them. However, the problem persists. Thanks in advance, Christopher

Assuming your entire question is in the Subject, the file you need is your 
Personal Folders file (*.pst) It's where all the mail, calendar, contacts 
etc are stored.

Take a look at these pages for info on Outlook data backup or transfer:

4.Need to find contacts under master list of "Contacts" & by "Catego

I have assigned a category to each of my contacts.  The navigation panel 
shows a heading of "Contacts"; then indented sub-headings show each of the 
"categories".  The contacts did not automatically "sort" into the sub-heading 
categories, but I was able to drag & drop into the appropriate category. 

Now, however, they do not appear in the "Contacts" list (the master list of 
Contacts).  I need to be able to find the contacts under "Contacts" in the 
navigation panel AND in the specific catagories which appears under Contacts.

In other words, I want to be able to look up contacts under "Contacts" or 
under the category assigned to that contact.
