Displaying another user's contacts as an Outlook Address Book

We are running Outlook 2002 on top of Exchange 2000.

I would like to see another user's contacts displayed as an address book; I have rights to their contacts, have added their contacts to the 'Advanced' tab, and have no problem seeing the contacts - but I can not get it to display as an address book.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I don't believe this will be possible without exporting and importing.  You can set your own contacts as an address book, but not someone else's.

Hi preisman

Can you see the Contacts folder of the other user in your Folder List?

If so a possible work-around may be to open their contacts folder > right click on the contact you want to send an email to > 'New message to contact'

For multiple contacts in the same email click each contact holding down Ctrl > Actions > 'New message to contact'

Not as clean as you would probably like, but it will work.

On a side note, in order for my group to work around this issue another way, all group members -only- use a Public contact Folder for emails. That may work for you.

Adding delegate contacts to your own address lists

1. Start with a profile that logs directly onto the delegate user's
mailbox, not your own.

2. While logged on to the other user's mail, choose the properties dialog for the Contacts folder. Make sure that it's set to display in the Outlook Address Book and give it a
display name other than contacts, such as Joe's Contacts.

3. Close Outlook.

4. In Control Panel | Mail, edit the *same profile* to change the
mailbox from the other user's to your own. On the Advanced tab of the
Exchange Server service, add the other user's mailbox as a secondary
mailbox.

5. Restart Outlook, and you should see the Joe's Contacts in your
Outlook Address Book as well as your own Contacts folder.

Thanks, this is *this* close to working properly - the trick about editing the same profile worked great.  However, it says I do not have permissions when I try and open that address book?  

I do have permissions as owner, and can open the contacts folder manually.  Any ideas?

Never mind, I think you must have to be a delegate, even if you have rights?

Thanks for a great solution!

Make sure you have granted your account owner rights to the delegate account. You will also have to change your contacts property to show them in the address list.
