      When I first started using IMAP, I lost all my contacts in a crash.  So I started keeping my contacts in a separate PST that I could back up etc.  I use the same data file for all my e-mail addresses.

      What I don’t know is how to manage all the Contacts groups and files that Outlook creates, so that when I add a new contact, it is (only?) Going into my primary PST file, and that that PST file is the one that is referenced when I press “To” when sending e-mail, and, hopefully, is the one that I am editing/adding to/deleting from when I work with Contacts.

      If I go to my Home tab in Outlook, and then to the Address book, I have some **14** items to choose from, but all I want is ONE.

      How can I set things to be sure I am working in the right file, and, if at ALL possible, whittle that list of available files down to one?
