    I sent out a message morning to a crap load of people for my Terry Fox run pledge and apparently they didn’t go through because of “possible abuse.” Now, all of those recipients have been removed from my Outlook address book. I already restored my computer to yesterday and they haven’t come back. Is there anything else I can do?

    You can try doing a search for *.wab files on your system. There might be an original back up made before they deleted the recipient entries ?

    The default WAB address book should be in
    C:\Documents and Settings\<YourUserName>\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book

    It's always a good idea to make a back up if the address book is important. You can import the address book at a later date if needs be.

    This reply is likely too late for you, but might still be relevant for other users searching for answers.
