    Drop down Menu of Address Book not working

    I am using outlook express as my email client to view and my mails. I had all my contacts stored in the address book of outlook express. I am noticing a quiet different behavior in the address book. When i click in the search box address book it does not shows a list of names. Means its drop down list is not functioning. How to enable this list.

    To view the names in the drop down list, you have to enable your Contacts
    Folder as an email address book.
    Launch Outlook Express. Then click on Tools. Select Address Book.
    In the Address Book select Tools > Option
    Select Outlook Address Book.
    Restart the application.
