How can I get Outlook2010 to create new contacts in Contacts folder!?

Hi

When I create a new contact manually, it is be created in the "Suggested Contacts", rather than the real "Contacts" folder. How do make (Outlook2010/Win7) create new contacts in the ACTUAL contacts folder?

Many thanks

J

P.S. I absolutely hate Suggested Contacts with a passion because things keep disappearing there and then not synchronizing with my mobile phone and personally I would kill it off completely if I only know how.

Thanks but *bizarrely* Outlook has started saving contacts in the Contacts folder (not Suggested Contacts), even though I haven't changed any setting. Don't cha just love computers? [deep sigh]
