Listing another user's contact when sending emails

We use Outlook 2002 (SP2) and I am sure this used to work for us.  I have a secretary that has full control of her attorney's inbox.  She use to have his contacts folder listed whenever she went to send a new message by clicking on the TO: button.  This is no longer working, the attorney's contacts folder is not listed anymore.  I am sure this is how you do this:
Right click the folder you want to add.
Choose Properties, Outlook Address Book
Tick the "show this as an address book" box.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What you have outlined is the way to do it.
How does the secretary open the other mailbox? Is it opened as an additional mailbox?
If so, is that contact folder currently enabled as an Outlook Address Book? If so, try clearing the object, restarting Outlook and then enabling it again.

Yes, the other mailbox was added as a secondary mailbox.  Yes, the contact folder is enabled as an Outlook Address Book.
What do you mean by "clearing the object?

Go in to the properties of the Contacts folder, deselect the option for it to be an Outlook Address Book, then apply/ok out. Restart Outlook and turn the option back on again.
