    Hi, I'm trying to work with someone who was managing hundreds of contacts in
    outlook express in the windows address book. She has contacts divided into
    folders so that when she is composing and clicks the To: button, she can
    browse her contacts in folders and choose recipients. I have seen other
    posts in this forum telling me that this is not supported in Windows
    mail/windows contacts. My question is, if she upgrades to Outlook 2007, will
    she be able to do this? If that is the case, is outlook 2007 available for
    individual download, or is it possible to purchase an upgrade from
    Student/teacher edition to the full office package?

    Thanks for the help,

    Kevin

  3. Outlook 2007 can be purchased as a standalone version - there is no upgrade version, just the full version. Try http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-543...7311?ie=UTF8&s=software&qid=1178133198&sr=8-1 for a good price and free shipping (US). In Outlook, be sure to enable each contact folder as an Outlook Address Book (right click, properties, address book tab). However, using categories within a single contact folder is easier to use for me and many others.
