Hi

I have a Exhange 5.5 server that has all the contacts that the users in house need for email. I would like to know is there a way for me to export the global address book to the users that are useing pop3/smtp these users are remote and currently do not see any addresses. Is it possible to synch up an address book remote? If I need to send the addresses to them on a disk how can I do this?

if the user is set up to work offline, then they just syncrhonize the address book to their machine.  

And it sounds like these users do work remotely so they should be set up to work offline, anyway.Then they get their calendar, tasks, inbox and any other folders they want while offline.
