Is there any relationship between Outlook's contacts and Android's Messages contacts?

Last week there was an update to my Samsung S10. That update has lost a lot of my contacts in Messages, the SMS app. This is a real pain.

 

I had thought that there was some relationship between the Contacts in Outlook and what's on my phone. I have Office 365. So, I had thought that this couldn't happen. Now I'm wondering, is there no relationship at all between the Android Messages contacts and Outlook Contacts?

@Rod Falanga 

You can sync your contacts from the Outlook app to the native Android Contacts list.

In the Outlook app;
Settings-> tap on your Office 365 or Outlook.com account-> enable: Sync contacts

@Robert Sparnaaij I just discovered something I didn't see before on my phone. The Outlook app on my phone lost my Microsoft email account at Outlook.com?!

 

WHY DID IT DO THAT????????????????

 

Clearly, that has a lot, perhaps everything to do with my losing my contacts in the Android Messages app.
