    Well i'd expect this to be quite straight forward, but no!

    I need to share my Contacts folders in Outlook 2003, but NOT the default contacts folder. I have a number of contacts folders outside of the default folder that other users need access to.

    I have setup sharing and set the permissions on the folders I want to share, but the only contact folder that is visible by other users is the default folder. It appears that Office 2003 is limited to sharing just the default contacts folder but I wanted to see if anyone knows of a way to get around this?

    We are using Exchange Server 2003 by the way, cheers 8)

    Don't worry, i've copied the contacts into a Public Folder directory, they can be shared that way.

    Thanks

    I was just going to suggest that this is what public folders are for, and then I saw that you did it already.

    Lucky for me that I can do this in exchange 2007 without the need for public folders.
