As Neil's reply says, it's really best to use a public contacts folder for
business contacts. Leave the mailbox contacts for other (personal) contacts.
You don't want to run into problems when you delete someone's mailbox and
discover that they had stuff other people needed.....

However, you can share mailbox contacts folders - right-click, properties,
permissions - add whomever you wish, with the permissions you want. Then the
other user(s) can use file | open | other user's folder | mailbox/contacts.

Exporting [contacts] from 2003 to 2000 or 2002

Macros don't work in shared workbook?
I could have sworn they did in others that I've used where the workbook is shared. Is there anything I should be looking at?

So obviously, I'm missing something. But what ... that's the question <g>. In general, macros should work in shared workbook--if the user allows macros to run(!).

contacts being deleted
I have had several users complain about contacts being deleted from both Exchange and their Blackberry devices. The reports I have are that this is happening between 12 and 12:15 every night. I don't see any obvious Exchange maintenance that happens at that time that would cause this and was wondering if anybody here might have some suggestions? We're running Exchange 2007 SP2. Thanks.
