Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting your default address book, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…Whenever you're entering an email address or you click the to button to choose…an email address, there are at least two email address books available to you.…One is Contacts, that your local folks who you have entered and…it's who you find when you go to People.…The other choice is the Global Address Book that is…maintained by your organization, everybody on your network.…And by default, the Global Address Book will be checked first.…If you want to change the order, you go to, Open the address book,…choose Tools options and you can set the order.…
You can say Start with the Global Address List.…That's the default, you don't have to change that.…Or you can say when I start, I'd like to start with my own contact folders here.…This is the setting you'd choose if you work with a lot of folks outside of…your organization, if you're in charge of setting up vendor accounts, or…if you work in sales.…If you're in charge of sending out proposal requests, then you might normally…be working with your Contact folders rather than your Global Address Book.…
