Does anyone know how to do this?

User A secretary
User B boss

Using Outlook 2003.  Right now user A and user B have their own contact lists. User A is tired of duplicating her effort. She want one contact list between the both of them. ONe and one only.  That way when she adds or deletes something in the contact list it shows up for both of them.  

I thought about setting up a contact folder up in the "Public folders" part of exchange. I'd just give them permissions and it would work fine. However, both users have their contacts in their email lists (new email>click "To">show names from the:> drop down to "contacts" in list). However, I noticed that the public folder contact list doesn't show up in their email list.  So I need it availble in their email list. Is there a way to do all this?

Stefri is saying to right click your contacts folder that is under the Public Folders and click Properties.  Then click the Outlook Address Book tab and put a checkmark in "Show this folder as an email address book".

That's just what the doctor ordered. Thanks! Can I split points for you two?  How do you want me to divvy?

I give the credit to stefri, for stefri gave you the right answer.  It's easy to rush through the answers sometimes and not put out exactly what you meant to say.  So I wouldn't feel bad to give the points to stefri.  I was just throwing my 2 cents in to help clarify things.  I didn't mean to steal credit from stefri.  Thanks and I am glad that worked for you.
