I use Windows XP and Microsoft Outlook. When I go to format a New Mail Message and click on the To: field it does not produce the Address List as it did in the past. Instead, I get a message that reads, "The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions".

Any suggestions how I can reconfigure to get these features married up again?

Thanks, Penguin88

Thanks to those who tried to help. I found the solution by doing a little digging and here it is for those who might have the same problem:

Start Outlook
In Tools, click E-mail Accounts
Click View or change existing directories or address book, then click Next
Click Outlook Address Book, then click Remove
Click Yes when prompted
Click Add
Click Additional Address Books, then click Next
Click Outlook Address Book, then click Next
Click OK when you receive a message to restart
Click Finish
Exit Outlook
Restart Outlook
Right click the Contacts folder and then left click Properties
Click the Outlook Address Book tab
Click to select the Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book check box (if not already selected), then click OK

Voila, it works....!
