I need to create new Outlook profiles for my users following a migration
from 5.5>2003 (Inter-org). Whether or not I use the Exprofre tool to update
the profile it always leaves the 'show this folder as an e-mail address
book' box in the Outlook Address Book tab unticked. This will be very
annoying to my users and would seem to be such a simple thing to fix but I
can't find a way to do it other than manually ticking the box.

Any help appreciated.

Hi chrisstenson,

Once getting from 97 to 2003 have you removed the address book and added a new one to see if that would fix that issue.

I can understand how important it is for you to get a registry fix for this but I am wondering if removing  the address book and adding it would also be easier
