Other user's contact list as an address book


C

ChristyL

Using Win XP, Outlook 2003 (with FileSite document management), sp2.
I have a user who would like to show another user's contact list as an
address book, can't just right click properties, outlook address book tab (it
is gone). From previous posts, I got instructions on adding the mailbox and
showing it as an address book (this works). If changes are made to the
contact list, they do not show up when you go to To: and look in the address
book. Is there a way to fix this? I thought we could do this before, but
have somehow lost this ability.

Thanks. Hope this isn't too confusing.

changes should show immediately. Is the user using cached mode and caching
shared folders? If so, there may be a delay between the changes and when its
refreshed in her cache.

You are right, I guess there was a delay. I am now able to make changes and
have the new contact show up.

Another question though. Now she wants to add another user's mailbox the
same way. So she would have her contact list, the first other user's
contacts, and the second user's contacts. The instructions I have only
allows for one. How would I add the other? Thanks for any help.
