One of my colleagues said that she could not understand the below given sentence and it is incorrect. It looks correct to me. So I want to get the help of experts. Pls look at the sentence below and comment. Thank you.

Hello! Agni,

"Request you to make sure that your contact information in outlook address book is current"

The verb, "request" in this sentence requires the subject "I". With the subject in its place, it reads; "I request you to make sure that your contact information in outlook address book is current"

Except for the subject matter, this is an acceptable sentence.

But you'd rather say, "I request you to make sure that THE contact information in YOUR outlook address book is current"

Or, you can just say, "Make sure that the contact information in your outlook address book is current" because "I request you" is superfluous, or redundant in this sense.

...although, if you are not going to say "I request you" it might be polite to put "Please" instead.... so: "Please make sure that the contact information in your outlook address book is current"
