This hit me today.. couldn’t get the outlook mail enabled public folder contacts to show up in the contact section if my life depended on it….
Found this post:
Know this is a bit old post. But as i just had the same problem, and no one here got a solution to why the favorites did not show up under the contacts.
After digging a bit around, i found this page http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/commandlines.htm
Clears and regenerates the Navigation Pane for the current profile. Removes all Shortcuts and Favorite Folders. Has the same effect as deleting profilename.xml in your user directory.
Start Outlook with a switch > Start > Run > Outlook /resetnavpane
It removed the previous ‘favorites’ and when added again, it now shows the other contacts.
Reset the navigational pane and voila. There’s my public folder contacts in their proper spot as favorites.
