Chapter 11. Address Books and Directory ... > Setting Up a Personal Address Book

Setting Up a Personal Address Book

One word: Don't. Microsoft wants to steer people away from using the Personal Address Book (PAB). If you don't have an old one you used with a previous version of Outlook, skip this section—you should not start using one now. If you have a PAB you created years ago and are still using it, you should seriously consider importing it into your Contacts folder.

If you're upgrading from a pervious version of Outlook and have a PAB in your profile, the first time you use Outlook after upgrading, you'll be asked whether you want Outlook to import the entries in the Personal Address Book and remove the Personal Address Book from your profile, as shown in Figure 11.6. Choose Yes to import the entries into your Contacts folder. If you choose No, you can import the entries at a later time; see the “Converting Your Personal Address Book to Contacts” section later in this section.
