Viewing the Outlook Address book from Thunderbird, I find many addresses not present that are in the Outlook address book.

When composing a new email in Thunderbird, I select the Address Book and select Outlook Express's Book.  I see many many names that I have deleted and then more recent names are missing.   When I open Outlook Express, I see fewer names in the roster and the more recent names are present.  This issue seems identical in nature to the previous one I entered yesterday: Bug 393107:  Thunderbird somehow sees old and non-updated information in both emails and now the Address book.  My current OUTLOOK Address Book has 122 entries when viewed from OutLook. The roster shows 407 entries when viewing it from Thunderbird.  The extras here were deleted from within Outlook about 4 weeks ago, beofre installiong Thunderbird.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin to compose (write) an email.
2.Select Address Book and then Outlook Express Address Book
3.Names are not current with existing OE address book.  Some are missing and deleted ones not present in the existing book are present here.
4. Thunderbird appears to be using a non-updated (old) OE address book. 
Actual Results:  
More recent names are missing in the OE address book when viewed from Thunderbird. 
Deleted ones are present here.  The view from Thunderbird shows 407 entries.  Viewing the Outlook Address Book from Outlook does verify the difference - there are only 122 entries.  Thunderbird appears to be using a non-updated (old) OE address book.

Expected Results:  
I should see the same number of names whether I view the Outlook Address Book from  Thunderbird or Outlook Express.

I am not aware of why an old version of the Address book would be kept or why Thunderbird might access an old backed-up address book file used for restoration?

Thunderbird isn't using the *current* OE address book, but the one OE had when you did the import. 

You didn't install thunderbird 4 weeks earlier also? (To try it out?) Did the import really happen recently? (You would have seen the import wizard dialog.)
