[Outlook Address Book]
ServiceName=CONTAB

Everything works fine, except users are not getting the 'Outlook address book' which is just a conduit to the Contacts folder. I want to somehow add the service, and have the contacts folder in their mailbox set to 'use as outlook address book' without telling my users;

"Please follow the following steps in Outlook; Go to Tools, Email accounts, Select View or Change existing directories or address books, Select Add Select Additional address books Select Outlook address book Right click your contacts Go to properties Outlook address book Select Show this folder as an e-mail address book. "


Please advise. Last time I had to pull OPG from production because of this ..... (grrrr....)
