    Updated from 14371 to 14372, contacts in Outlook 2016 suddenly gone!


    Hi,
    I updated Windows 14371 to 14372 the other day, and haven't had much thought to check Outlook as it was the weekend.
    Today, when I went to open Outlook 2016, and create a new email, I started typing the contacts name, and nothing appeared, so I went to check the Contacts section in Outlook 2016, and all my contacts were gone.
    All my emails are there in my inbox, and other folders have everything still, just the contacts are going?!!?!?
    Don't get it, never had any issues with this before in other inside builds.
    Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution?

    That's the problem with running a Beta OS you never really know if or when something will break.

    I hope you read the warning before starting the insider program and are not running it on your main PC, Most people I know run it on a Virtual machine to be safe.

    I was able to export my gmail contact list and re-import it back into Outlook.
    Forgot about that.
    I run it on a secondary laptop, but I use it just as much as my main laptop.
