PAB Import into Outlook 2007


D

DAI

We currenlt are using Office XP & Office 2003 with POP3. Email is hosted
offsite. We've created a Personal Address Book (PAB) that gets replicated to
users shared directory. Whenever we add a new employee we add them to the
PAB & then copy that PAB to each users email folder. The issue we are having
is that we can no longer get Office 2003 on new PCs. They are shipped with
Office 2007. Office 2007 does not support PAB. We have to manually visit
each new PC & import the PAB into the users' contact folder. We have 75 PCs
that will eventually need to be visited each time the PAB is updated. Is
there another alternative to accomplish this (i.e. Global Address Book that
is shared to each 2007 client, Script file run to import PAB in 2007
Contacts, etc...)?

Ask in an Exchange group. Not an Outlook question.
You should have abandoned PAB's long ago. There was ample warning of the
need to do so.

We do not use Exchange and do not plan on going to this product. After
posting this question to this forum & checked other forums that I posted to &
they that had viable solutions using either Active Directory or 3rd party
apps for sharing folders in Outlook. Such as 3stepshare
(http://www.3stepshare.com/slipstick.aspx) There are other 3rd party apps
out there that allow Outlook Contact sharing.
