You only have one address book available at a time. Which one is
determined by your sign-in status. If you're signed in with a Live
ID, then the contacts available to you will be those associated with
that address. If you're not signed in, you will have your Default
contacts - ones which you have added manually or imported while not
If you want to organize your contacts so that, for example, you can
mail all your clients, then set up a Category (New > Category) and
add all your clients to it. If you call the category Clients, then
this is all you have to type in the To: box of a new message window.
By clicking on the '+' sign in the box, you reveal all the addresses
so you can delete some if necessary.
If you want a message rule to apply to messages from your clients,
in the New (or Edit) Rule dialogue, click Contacts and then
double-click on the Clients category to add all their addresses to
the rule. This rule will not be reliable if you select Apply Now,
but it will be for new incoming messages.
Please quote at least some of the message you're responding to: it
makes it much easier for people to follow the conversation.
