Hi

The OWA Contacts allows you to view your existing contact list.  You can also create new contacts and add them to your list.  If you are saving your contacts in a Personal Address Book and not Contacts, then you will not be able to view them.  These are saved to your C: drive of your computer and not the server.

Thanks

Hi there
yes all my contacts are saved within contacts but under contacts I have a few folders eg: Houston; Personal etc which i cannot view, I can only see the GAL and the default Contacts folder.

OWA only allows access to the default contacts folder and the global address list.
If you want access to other contact folders then you have two options.

1. Open the other contact folder, find the address you want, copy and paste it across.
2. Look at a third party product to extend OWA. Messageware do a product that offers this feature, there may be others.
