Can someone lend me a hand with a small problem? I am having trouble with my Outlook 2010.

There are certain contacts that have gone missing and I haven’t found a way of retrieving them.

I am thinking of installing Outlook again and stop the problem and possibly recover the lost emails.

Is this a Possible solution?

Can anyone please tell me if there is a better way?

            Outlook permits any contact folder to be employed by the address book, not simply the first Contacts folder. for instance, if you produce a replacement folder of contacts referred to as "Friends" (without the quotation marks), you'll specify that the contacts within the Friends folder additionally seem in your address book.
 
These are the steps on how to resolve your problem:
 
First certify the Contact folder is enabled as an email address book. Right click the Contacts folder, opt for Properties and then Outlook Address Book. The enable box of an email address book ought to be checked. for many folks, this straightforward step fixes the matter.
 
However, if the box is dimmed and unavailable, you will need to travel to Tools->Email Accounts and opt for read or modification existing directories or address book. If the Outlook Address Book isn't listed, add it and then shut and restart Outlook. If it's listed, then take away it, close, and then restart Outlook and repeat these steps to feature it.
 
Another frequent drawback faced when users attach an recent message store to a profile is ghost contact lists within the Address Book list. to get rid of these, open the address book, then head to Tools->Options and take away the ghosts from the Addressing list. If you are not positive that folder is that the ghost, you'll continuously take away all of the folders listed and add them back.
