One of our users is sharing his contacts with a permission level of editor. The person who is viewing these contacts can see them but when they try to update or add contacts they are not changed on the hosts pc. We are running exchange 2003.

Hi latingravitas,

Are you saying that the user with the shared access is able to add/change contacts and can see those adds/changes, but the mailbox owner cannot?

Cheers!

Then I have to assume one of the following:

1.  The mailbox owner has a view applied that is keeping the changes/additions from showing up.
2.  The user with shared access is adding/editing items in the wrong folder.
3.  The mailbox owner isn't refreshing after a change/addition.

Are you using Cached Exchange Mode?

Yes we are using cached exchange mode. The mailbox owner has the default settings for editor set, with the one person having those editor rights.  I would assume the editor is adding/editing contacts in the correct folder, but this person is not at my location to confirm this.

It could be a caching problem.  As a test you could try turning cached mode off and see if the items appear.  If they do, then we'd know it's a problem with caching.  If they don't then we'd know it's something else.
