Use the Mobile Address Book

Multimedia message functionality is not available to wireless service subscribers in the United States. The Outlook Mobile Service is restricted to text messages only in the United States.

After you create an Outlook Mobile Service account, a Mobile Address Book is created automatically. This address book contains all the contacts in your Outlook Contacts folder who have their mobile phone numbers listed.

Delete contacts from the Mobile Address Book

  1. In the Select Names: Contacts (Mobile) dialog box, click the contact that you want to delete, and then press DELETE.

  2. Click OK to confirm that you want to delete the contact.

Note: Deleting a contact from the Mobile Address Book does not remove the contact from your Outlook Contacts list. Instead, it will remove only the mobile number from the details listed for the contact.

Deleting a contact from Outlook Contacts will automatically remove it from the Mobile Address Book.
