Show delegates contacts in my address book

I have been given "Delegate" access to another users mail box including their contacts. How can I get their contacts list to appear in my address book.

Hi, MandyC.

You can't get their contacts to appear in your address book.  Outlook will only show address books that are a part of your Outlook profile.  Outlook only allows one Exchange mailbox per profile, so even though you can open the other person's Contacts, you cannot add them to your profile and have them appear as an address book.

I found solution to this issue:

Display Other User's Contacts in Address Book

For those that need help assigning rights to access another user's mailbox in outlook:

I did it and it worked fine for me.

By the way, after you do the steps above, you may start getting an error when  you open outlook that it is in recovery mode or similar, to fix that do this:
