Can the Contacts info be saved in such a way as to be able to view it from both local and TS copy of Outlook?

Exchange 2003, Outlook 2003.  User has all her contact info available to her while using PC in office, but when on Outlook on Terminal Server, user doesn't see her contacts.  Calendar info is available in both places, but not Contacts.  Can this folder be set up in such a way as to allow the user to access this (same ) information from within both copies of Outlook?  Is it simply a matter of redirecting the location of this file?  If so, how/where is it?  Thanks!

    Contacts aren't normally a file by themselves.  They are a folder in the person's mailbox on Exchange or in a PST file, usually the same one the mai is in, if not using Exchange.  The only way her calendar could be visible in both places while her contacts are only visible when not on TS is if the calendar and contacts are in different locations.  They shouldn't be.  Since you mention that she is using Exchange I have to conclude that she's moved her contacts to a PST file on her PC.  She should put them back in the mailbox.
