Outlook 2007: Enable Contact Linking

By default, Outlook 2007 has contact linking disabled. In previous versions, it was enabled by default giving you a field on most forms that you could use to link a contact to an item which would then show up on the Activities tab.


To enable Contact Linking:

1. Click Tools and select Options.

2. Click the Contacts Options button.

3. Check the Show Contact Linking on all Forms checkbox.

4. Click OK to close the Contact Options dialog box.

5. Click OK to close the Options dialog box.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Such a simple, stupid, USEFUL thing…so WHY did Microsoft turn it off by default??? (No, don’t answer that)

    The hint was greatly appreciated!
