ES 5.5 problem adding contacts in Address Book Views

Hi,

I just created a public Address Book Views with permission given to all users in the company to access to.

The problem is when any of the users wants to create a new entry in the Address Book. When I select that public address book to create a new entry, it tells me that I cannot create it.

What's the problem? The purpouse is to create a public address book wich can be accesed from any of the clients.

Thanks

Here is a step by step, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q258775 . Note that in Exchange 5.5 Outlook Web Access cannot use this contact list but normal Outlook can.

Forget the phrase "address book", it's nothing to do with shared contacts list which is what you need.

I just tried this and it works OK.

Added the folder to the public folders in ES admin.

On the properties page, general tab click 'Client Permissions...' Give Default 'Author' access.  I also set Anonymous to 'None'

Let me know if it works.

As per acmp, create a contact list in public folders.

Address Book Views is to structure views of your own recipients in the global address list and can only be added to on the server by first creating a new user.

OK,

You can add a new public folder by right clicking the public folder in Outlook!.  Chose to 'Create subfolder' then fill in the box.  This gives a basic folder.  you can pplay with the permissions from within Outlook or Exchange Admin.

When you create the new folder make sure the 'Folder Contains' box (the second one down) says 'Contact Items'
