I have 2 outlook address books; 1 personal, 1 business. When I try to add a personal entry by the method you describe here, it invariably goes into the business address book every time. I can't seem to change it over to the personal address book. Is there a way?

When I right-click on the email address in O365, I have two options, "Copy email address" and "View details". It seems Roger Taylor said the same thing a year ago, and yet here we are still.
