Enabling the Contacts Box in Outlook 2007

In Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 and earlier, there was a box next to the Category section at the bottom of an appointment where I could add contacts. I can't seem to locate that box in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. Is that feature available in Outlook 2007?

In Outlook 2007, the Contacts box for linking items to contacts doesn't appear by default. However, you can enable it by doing the following:

  1. In Outlook 2007 click Tools, Options, Contact Options.

  2. Check the box marked Show Contact Linking on All Forms.

That setting is also available in Group Policy Editor (GPE) after you download the Outlk12.adm file from the following link:

and load it into the Office Configuration Tool.
