Default Address Book missing

Hi, I had to load a fresh copy of windows 10, and when I reinstalled my Office Professional Plus 2019, all my contacts in the Outlook address book were missing. All my e-mails, both in my inbox and all the folders I had created returned.



Can anyone please advise how I can install my address book. The account was set up as IMAP

The address book is simply a view into the Contacts list. Ensure that your Outlook Contacts list property is set up as an Outlook Address book.

Hi Graham, thanks for your prompt reply, found my contacts and added to my address book, however I couldn't find 4 distribution lists I had previously created, are they stored somewhere else.

If they are in the contacts they should be in the address book.

Hi Graham, I have checked, the distribution files are not there. I think I created them incorrectly direct from the address book. I have now re-created them from the Contacts file and they are there.

Thanks for all your help

After having to reinstall Windows 10 (after a crash) and Office Pro 2013 my Contacts are all visible in MS Outlook but my Address Book is empty. You mentioned to ensure that the 'Outlook Contacts list property is set up as an Outlook Address book.' But I can't see where to do that! Can you guide me please?
