Address book empty
Question asked by Piet Piedro - 5/3/2021 at 3:49 PM
In the left column of Outlook 2019 is Contacts (Only this computer). This is no use when e-mailing. This file has been converted to .pst. It is a file of approximately 150 mail addresses. A time-consuming job to write everything down and put it back in the address book.
Is there a possibility to transfer the .pst file to the address book?
I'd love to hear from you.

I tested this in my own Outlook MAPI connection, and I found that the following steps should allow you to import an address book pst into Windows Outlook.
  1. Log into the desired account/profile in Outlook Windows
  2. Make sure you know where you have downloaded the pst to on your computer
  3. Click the file button in the top left
  4. Click “Open & Export”
  5. Click “Import/Export”
  6. In the Import and Export Wizard select “Import from another program or file” and click next
  7. Select “Outlook Data File (.pst) and click next
  8. Click browse and go to the location of the pst file and double click it
  9. Click next
  10. In the “Select the folder to import from” window, click the dropdown arrow next to “Outlook Data File,” select Contacts and click finish.
  11. You should then see the imported address book in “My Contacts”
