Setting BSU or NTC as the default institution in Outlook address book

Now that BSU and NTC have joined the MinnState.edu Office 365 cloud, our address book shows employees and students from other institutions too.  (Windows)

There is an easy way to set your address book to display BSU or NTC addresses first by default.

  1. Open Outlook.  On the Home ribbon, click on Address Book.
  2. Click Options from the Tools menu
  3. Click the “When opening the address book, show this address list first” drop down list and select Bemidji State U – ALL or Northwest TC – ALL.  Click Ok to confirm your choice.
  4. When you launch the Address Book in the future, your default institution list will be what you’ve selected above.
