How to Add a New Address Book to Outlook 2007

By Mario Calhoun

The Address Book in the Microsoft Outlook 2007 program is a collection of contact names and email addresses that are automatically stored into one area as you send and receive emails, according to the official Microsoft Office site. If you want to create a new, separate Address Book, you can do so by accessing the program's account settings and choosing what type of address book to add. As of July 2010, Outlook 2007 supports the standard address book as well as the Internet directory service (LDAP) according to Bill Dyszel, author of "Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 For Dummies."

LDAP Address Book

Step 1

Open Outlook 2007 on your computer, and click "Tools" at the top of the program menu.

Step 2

Select "Account Settings" from the pull-down menu, and click the "Address Books" tab. Click "New" to create a new address book.

Step 3

Select "Internet Directory Service," and click the "Next" button. Enter the LDAP's server name, and check the box next to "This server requires me to log in" if applicable. Enter the server's password, and click "More Settings."

Step 4

Enter the name of the address book in the "Display Name" field, and enter the port number of the address book in the "Connection Details" section.

Step 5

Enter a name in the "Search base" box to add a specific contact, click the "OK" button and click "Next" to proceed.

Step 6

Click "Finish" to complete the setup process.
