Default Separate Address Book (or Contact folder)

I use Outlook 2007. As a volunteer I maintain the demographic data for a small summer church. I was to import names & e-mail addresses from the data base ( I can export the data to a text or excel file).

When I import the data into Outlook I do not want to have all the names (about 300) in my default address book or Contact list.

I think what I want to do is set up a separate address book, import the 300 + names into the new address book and then send e-mails to the group from that address book.

I hope I have described my problem clearly?!

How do I do this?



Thanks, Alan

To add a new address book in Outlook 2007
  1. On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
  2. On the Address Books tab, click New.
  3. When you are prompted, Click Additional Address Books, and then click Next.
  4. Click the address book that you want to add, and then click Next.
Note: You must exit and restart Outlook to use the address book that you added.

When importing the contacts make sure you are importing into the new address book.

I have done what you suggested but when I go to import the new address book [Contacts(mobile)] is not listed. I must have done something wrong. I did exit Outlook and restart.
