3.2. Address Books

In simple terms, an address book is where Outlook stores contact information. Address Books are a messy topic because:

  • There can potentially be more than one, confusing users no end. Quickly now, what's the difference between the Outlook Address Book, a Personal Address Book, the Global Address Book, and the Windows Address Book?

  • The name suggests a separate, discrete entity. And in some situations, this is indeed the case (the Personal Address Book, for example). In other situations, the term address book refers to an interface that collects and synchronizes contact information.

  • Address Book dialogs are both visually and organizationally different than the form displayed when a contact record is opened from the Outlook Contacts folder. Because of this, the relationship between the Address Book and the Outlook Contacts folder is not readily apparent.
