Exchange 2003 public contact folder
I have Exchange 2003 running on my network and the users
have expressed interest in having one main contact list
they can all access and add contacts to. Is there a step
by step out there that will show how to do this. If so,
please advise. I believe this can be done through public
folders. Note, will this public contact list still have
the functionality of other contact folders? ie: they will
be able to send an email by clicking on the contact.
...DELETE multiple contact folders
Searching this group, I see many posts asking how users can implement
multiple contact folders ("address books"). My problem is the reverse: I
don't know why, but on the pulldown menu under "Outlook Address Book," I
have TWO folders labeled "Contacts." I think this resulted from an earlier
attempt to export my old list from a different computer. In any event, what
a pain trying to manage them. I never know from which folder my
auto-complete entries are being drawn, so when I update a contact I have to
do it in both folders. But I haven't yet fou...Outlook New Email "To..." Addresses From Contact Folder

We're running Outlook 2000 and Exchange 2000.
I have a Distribution List called DL1
in a Contacts Folder called CF1

When I type DL1 in the To: field of an email and click "Check Names" Outlook
is unable to resolve the name of the Distribution List. But it resolves non
Distribution List entries just fine.
To set this up, I right clicked CF1, clicked Properties, Outlook Address

In Outlook 2002 I have two Contact folders. This seems to be because I failed
to copy my .pst file from my old computer until after I installed Outlook.
The primary Contact file has no entries so I have to specifically choose the
2nd file before I e-mail. How do I delete the empty one and make the 2nd the
primary? BTW if I click Contacts on the menu my good set shows. I have closed
a second Personal Folders set which resulted from the above problem.

We have set up a Public Contacts Folder in Exchange 2003 and have assigned

away but say the next day).
We can't find any documentation on how the Activites Tab works. Would anyone

I would like to set a folder located in a PST file as my primary (and

Hey everybody. I wanted to pass along a program that offers a
valuable fix to what I believe is a significant bug in MS Outlook.
A friend had created some new folders specifically for Contacts, and
had named them accordingly and was moving Contacts from their default
"Contacts" folder to the new folders he'd created.
When he tried to rename one of the folders, he accidentally clicked on
Delete Folder (which appears next to "Rename Folder" in the pulldown).
I'm not sure if it prompted him to delete, but if it did, he must have
