I'm running Exchange 2003 SP2 and was wondering if there is a way to share someone's Outlook contacts folder as a public folder?

If so how does one do this?

You would have to move or copy the contacts in to a public folder. Then everyone can see them.

Then when ever there is a change they have to be copied back again? This would be a nightmare waiting to happen!

Exchange isn't a CRM.
You can do some of the CRM type activities by putting the contacts in to a public folder and leaving them there.
You could also share the user's contact list out and then allow others to access it.

What you cannot do is make Outlook default to any other folder except the user's personal Contacts folder when creating new contacts, unless you select the other contact folder first, then choose New, Contact.
