    Is it possible to change the default behaviour of Outlook 2003 to show the contents of the *Contacts* folder, rather than showing the default *Global Address List* when you click on *to* when sending an email?

    It's causing a few headaches but I can't see how to change it :blink

    open the address book, go to tools and select options. you'll find an option called 'show this address list first'.

    [edit] but you won't be able to display the contacts folder, because the folder isn't an address list. you can create a custom address list and import the contacts folder, though.

    Okay just an update to let you know that this did work for me *without* having to create a custom address list and then import the contacts. Though thanks again d-Faktor!

    These are the steps I took..

    1) Open Outlook :)

    2) Click on Tools > Address Book (this opens the address book)

    3) In the address book, click on Tools > Options

    4) In the drop down box for *show this list first* select *contacts*

    5) In the box *when sending mail, use the address lists in the following order* highlight *contacts* and move it to the top

    I am not sure of the ramifications of removing the global address list, so I just changed the order (step 5)

    Bob is indeed your uncle.
