creating contact groups



  • 1. Importing Outlook.pst file
    Need help. I just replaced my hard drive and I'm trying to import my Outlook.pst file (will my old inbox, contacts, etc.) back into my new, empty Outlook, so that my e-mail looks like it did before I replaced my hard drive. I tried using the Import tool. I clicked "import from another program or file", then clicked on "Personal Folder File (*pst), then entered the path to the file to import (the outlook.pst file), and then hit finish. The reply was, "The source and destination folders for this operation cannot be the same". So, that didn't work. I'm hoping someone can tell me how to fix this problem so that I can import the outlook.pst file correctly. Any ideas? Thanks!

  • 3. Creating a distribution list from a Category
    I have categories assigned to groups of people. Now I want to be able to make a distribution list from a category. Either that, or I want to be able to add a new contact to an existing distribution list. Anyone know how to do this? Also, I do not have my original Office 2000 disks - anyone know how to get the patches and updates without them? I transferred Office from an old PC using Aloha Bob - I have no idea where my old disks are. HELP!
  • 4. Synchronize Address Book in Outlook XP with MSN 9 using Outlook Connector
    Can I synchronize MSN Address Book with Outlook Address Book? I have MSN 9 installed On my system. I heard that it is possible using Outlook Connector for MSN 9, which automatically synchronizes MSN address book with Outlook XP. Please Help :-) Mallik
  • 5. New message to multiple contacts
    When I have a group of contacts open and I would like to send a new message I right click on the contact and it gives me the option to send a new message. I would like to send this same message to several people in the contacts folder. If I click the "to" button I can bring up the contacts as an address book but these are not sorted in a way to make the selection process easy. Is there a way to get a new message to several people in a contact folder at the same time?

There's really no such thing as Contact "groups".  I'd use categories were I 
interested in what you appear to want.  As for choosing what to sync, that's 
up to your sync software, not Outlook.

You can also create seperate contact folders to classify your contacts by 
group; i.e., a "Family & Friends" folder.  As for syncing with your 
Blackberry, that will depend on the software you use.  Activesync, for 
example, will only sync your primary contact folder.  Even that will work if 
you use the "Contacts" folder for your Family & Friends and put your other 
groups in other contact folders.

5.Creating Outlook contacts from individual members of a Group

I have several groups in my Outlook Contact folder that 
contain e-mail addresses of individuals that are not on my 
global address list.  I want to create contacts for the 
individual members in the group.  I notice that when I add 
new members to a group, I am given the option to check a 
box to add them to my contacts.  However, once a member 
has been added, when I check their properties, I don't 
have that option.  Is there a way to create contacts for 
the individuals members besides doing it manually?
