 OL98 lost connection to Contacts when creating email

Have Outlook 98 with IMO. Changed from dialup to cable modem connection.
Now when creating a new email, cannot see Contacts within Select Name
dialog box. It has dropdown items "Shared Contacts" and "Main Identity's
Contacts" instead of "Contacts."
Opened address book>>tools>>options. The dialog box nothing is allow to
be selected. It shows Data Sharing with the first option dimmed (Shared
contact information amoung Microsoft Outlook and other applicaations.
Address book data will be stored in theMicrosoft Outlook contact Store.
The second one (Do not share information among Microsoft Outlook and
other applications. Address book data will be stored in an Address book
(*.wab) file.) is marked as selected.
How do I get the first choice back?

Try opening the address book from within  Outlook Express and see if you can
change the option then.

Whaen you are doing this "Opened address book>>tools>>options ...  are you

Check that Outlook is set as your defualt manager for Contacts in  the
programs tab of IE properties.

There is no Tools | Options in the address book in Outlook! It's only
available via OE.
Try renaming all wab*.* files and reinstall Outlook Express.
