    I have mobileme working fine with my macbook and iphone but I have an annoying problem in Outlook on my PC.

    If I click to write an email, then click on my address book it only shows me some contacts. If I click on the option to show names from the:....I only get the options to select from Outlook Address Book or Contacts.

    However, if I click on the Contacts tab within outlook I can see all the categories I have and in each one all my contacts details.
    Is there anyway I can add them into the main list so I can open an email, click the address book, and see everyone?

    I think you can fix that by going to the outlook tools/address book then on the top bar (of the address book window thats just been opened) find the option button. there you can add or delete which contacts lists show in your address book.

    I have the problem that the email addresses do not show up in the address book (seems to be due to the format that the mobile me saves it in). So everytime i change it but after a while mobile me changes it back to a format that does not show up in outlook. (custom not smtp or internet i think). If anyone knows how to fix this I would be so happy.
