Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Conversion from Beta to Full Version

Outlook 2010 Conversion from Beta to Full Version

After 10 months, I finally took the risk and I got burned (Thanks Microsoft!), I upgraded from Outlook 2010 Beta to the full version. The "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" option is dimmed out and I cannot set any contact folder as an e-mail address book. So when I type in any e-mail addresses that are in my contact folder, Outlook does not see them.

I've already gone to the Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2010) app in the Control Panel. The address book function there does not allow me to make any changes.

Any ideas?

Did you uninstall the Beta and install the Full or did you do an upgrade. There are issues when you do an upgrade. Better off uninstalling everything then reinstall the full version. Don't worry all of you contacts will remain as long as you don't tell Office to delete the contact list when you uninstall. I had to do the same thing when I went from 2007 to 2010. I uninstalled 2007, then installed 2010 and all of my contacts came into 2010 automatically.
