Difference Between Contacts and Address Book

I'm just trying to start to use Outlook (MS Small Bus 2007 w/ Outlook and
Bus. Contact Mgr) for email and have a number of Contacts setup in different
Categories. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN USING "Contacts" VERSUS USING THE
ADDRESS BOOK???

Re: Difference Between Contacts and Address Book

There is no address book in Outlook. What you think is an address book is
simply a view of the electronic addresses contained in your Contacts Folder.
Explain why you are confused and what you question is.

Excuse my butting in here, but I'm also confused, so perhaps so extra
confusion will help? :-)

I have Office 2003 (but it was the same in Office XP). I create a mail
rule and chose "Sender is in specified address book". When I get to
specify the address book (a step which itself mystifies me; I thought I
had only one) I'm give the choice of "Outlook Address Book" or
"Contacts". I just fumble around until the rule does what I want,
without ever knowing what I'm doing. Perhaps one of these is relevant to
people who use an exchange server; I don't.

You specify the folder in which the Contact resides. The Outlook Address
books contains no data. All Contact data is in a Contact Folder.
