How do I get other PC's using Outlook 2002 to use my new customed Outlook Contact Form?

I have created a new contact form in Outlook 2002, set it as my default, and all works well. But it's local to my machine. I want to use this new form as the default for Personal Contacts and All Contacts on all the other machines running Outlook 2002 on our LAN.  

How do I get each of the machines to see the new form, so I can set it as their new default?

I have it saved as .oft file. Can I drop it into a hidden file on each machine? Import it some how? For 'All Contacts' residing on the server (Windows Server2000/MS Exchange), where can I add it there?

Surely I don't have to develop a new form on each of the machines?????

Hi IvanHowarth,
IF you have permissions, you can publish the form in the Organization forms library. That way, it will be used Organization wide.

Let me know if it works for you! ;o)

When you refere to 'Organization', are you meaning our organization, i.e. have I got to create a seperate forms library, or is this a predifined library?

You can create a library called Organization forms on the Exchange Server.
