OWA Viewing Contacts when creating new message

I have Exchange Server 2003.  Outlook is available via the web (OWA).  We have public folders: Public Calendar and Public Contact Lists.

1. When in OWA I go to compose a new message and click the "To:" to add contacts to the message, I cannot see my contacts.  It is by default searching in the "Contacts" list first as opposed to "Global Addresses".  I am required to enter some data into a field in order to do a search.  Is there anyway to have all my contacts displayed when I press the "To:" button?

2. The public contacts lists, how do I send an e-mail from a contact in those lists?

3. Is there a way to add shortcuts to my public folders on my main screen?

Please offer any advice.

Thank you!

Dave

The rule with OWA is what you see is what you get.
Therefore if you can't see it, then it probably can't be done with native tools.

Contacts - that is by design.
To get it to display the contacts, hit the space bar and then find. It will show you the first 150 by default.

The public folder contact lists, the only way is to copy and paste the address - again without third party tools. The same for the adding shortcuts.

Take a look at the tools from Messageware. There maybe something in there that is suitable.

If I have Global Address Book selected, I can hit space and then find and I will see a list of all contacts in the Global list.  However this does not work with the "Contacts" list.

My mistake.
There is no way of getting your contacts to display. You must search for them.
