Adding Address Books

If you're upgrading from a previous version of Outlook, you might have a Personal Address Book (PAB) to add to your profile. Although importing the contents of the PAB to your Outlook Contacts folder is highly recommended, you can add the PAB to your profile if you want to.

Now that Outlook supports distribution lists within the Contacts folder, there's little need for a Personal Address Book in Outlook. It just adds another file to keep track of and back up. If you're upgrading and previously used a PAB, you should import your PAB to the Contacts folder. If you never used a PAB before, don't start now. The PAB might not work with future versions of Outlook and won't work for mail merges or as an address book in other MAPI-aware programs, such as Internet postage programs.
