Is there a way to actually make the scroll bar wider/bigger in Outlook 2003 Pro?  I have a few users who have so many contacts that the scroll bar keeps getting smaller and smaller and is very hard (for them) to control when scrolling through contacts.....

Hi - I would say that the behavior you're describing is the way Outlook's contacts features operate.  In fact, most windows based software does exactly that - the scroll bar gets smaller when the list (or spreadsheet, for example) gets larger/longer.

One idea is that you could use the Find options to search for Contacts.

Another is that the mouse roll ball allows you to scroll through your contacts without using the Scroll Bars.  And, Page Up and Page Down works as well.

Also, there are numerous third party Outlook Contact ad-in tools that may offer a better user experience when the contacts list gets lenghty.  Here's a good link to many of them.
