Make sure the the "Folder Visible" option is checked under the permissions for the contact folder.  Permission also needs to be given at the root folder (Outlook Today - Mailbox - User).  Uncheck the "Fodler Visible" option under the permissions of the folders not to share.

Yes, you need to setup properly permissions.  Assuming you are using exchange to facilite sharing, yes?

If yes, have the Outlook 2003 (using exchange) user share like this:

On the Go menu, click Folder List, right-click the exchange/mailbox folder you want to share, and then click Sharing on the shortcut menu.
Click the Permissions tab.
Click Add.
In the Type name or select from list box, enter the name of the person you want to grant sharing permissions to.
Click Add, and then click OK.
In the Name box, click the name of the person you just added.
Under Permissions, choose the settings you want.
