Changing your default address list in Outlook

If Outlook seems to be defaulting to an address book other than the Global Address list, you can change the default via the following steps;

  1. Open the Address Book by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+B or via the Address Book icon on the right side of the Home tab in the Ribbon.
  2. In the Address Book dialog choose Tools-> Options…
  3. Make sure “Start with Global Address List” is checked
  4. Use the drop down menu labeled "When opening the address book, show this address list first:" at the bottom to specify the Global Address List
  5. Select 'Ok'
