ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook, how do I change the default address book?

To change the default address book in Outlook for Windows, follow the appropriate steps below:

Note: UITS recommends that you use the Outlook address book (which is created automatically from information in your Contacts folder) instead of a Personal Address Book. The contacts will be located on the server and accessible from any Outlook client as well as Outlook Web App, whereas a Personal Address Book is only available from the hard drive of the computer on which you create it.

Outlook 2010

  1. From the Find group on the Home tab, select Address Book.

  2. In the Address Book window that appears, from the Tools menu, select Options... .

  3. Under "When opening the address book, show this address list first:", use the scroll-down menu to select the appropriate listing (i.e., Global Address Book, or Outlook Address Book).

  4. To save the changes, click OK.

  5. To close the Address Book, click the X in the top right corner.

Outlook 2007 and 2003

  1. From the Tools menu, select Address Book... .

  2. In the Address Book window that appears, from the Tools menu, select Options... .

  3. Under "Show this address list first:", use the scroll-down menu to select the appropriate listing (i.e., Personal Address Book, Global Address Book, or Outlook Address Book).

  4. To save the changes, click Apply.

  5. To exit, click OK.
