I have done a lot of searching and can't find a solution to this. It seems inconceivable that its not possible?

I'm running exchange 2003 with office 2003 outlook.

I have a public contact list shared with all of my companies contacts and I want to set it up so that when anyone saves a contact then by default they save into that public folder.

IF that is not possible is there an easy way to sync everyones personal contacts with the public contacts automatically when a new conat is added anywhere?

Only 5 users on the network.

Thanks

Steve

Greetings, stevendawson.

No, it isn't possible to save contacts to a public fodler by default.  Items of any type (i.e. task, appointment, contact, etc.) are automatically saved to the corresponding folder in the default mail delivery location (your mailbox if using Exchange, a PST file if you aren't).  That cannot be changed.  

No, there is no easy way to sync everyones personal contacts with the public folder.  Outlook has no built in means of doing that.  Instead you'd have to either write your own or find/purchase a third-party tool that does it for you.  Sorry!

Cheers!

That is so very frustrating isnt it. You'd expect that to be a requirement not an option.

Perhaps they've changed this behavior in Outlook 2007.
