If in the past you have had the problem where the contacts in your personal outlook contact folder do not appear in the list of address folders when you click the "To..." button when sending an email, here is a solution.  (Thanks to Burton White of Excella Consulting)
Tools -> Email Accounts
Select "Add a new directory or address book"
Select "Additional address books"
Select "Outlook Address book"
 
When you do a search for an address by clicking "To..." in an email, it defaults to show your addresses in the form "firstname lastname".  If you want to change that:
 
Tools -> Email Accounts
Select "View or change existing directories or address books"
Select "Change" button
Select "File as (Smith, John)"
 
Also, when you do a search for an address by clicking "To..." in an email, it shows the addresses in the Exchange server first.  If you want to change that to your Outlook Address book:
 
Tools -> Address book...
Tools -> Options
Select what you want in the drop down list "Show this address list first..."
