Global Address List as default source of contacts....
Posted on 2006-06-15
I've got a doctor client that is using Exchange on a SBS 2003 network. When he wants to send a fax from one of the apps on his XP tablet PC apps (via the shared fax on the server), he wants to be able to select from a list of fax recipients with a minimum of menu or control navigation. When sending the fax, clicking the Address Book button produces a dialog that begins in the Global Address List. The short list of recipients he wants to have convenient access to (pharmacies, in this case), is in a shared contact list created in Exchange.
In my opinion, changing the single drop down list from "Global Address List" to "Pharmacies List" is simple enough. But, he's the client and wants to know it can be even simpler. Thus my post here.
Here's my questions:
1) Is there a way to import my "Pharmacies List" contacts into the Global Address List?
2) Is there a way to have the "Pharmacies List" (an exchange-based shared contacts folder) be the default list (instead of the Global Address List) when the "Address Book" button is clicked in the Send Fax wizard dialog?
Thanks for any advice.
