Using Contact Sub folders in OWA

How can I enable the "show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" in Outlook Web Access.
When I create a new message I'd like to be able to search the contact su folders, not just the GAL and main Contacts.
Can someone help?

You can't search the subfolder for contacts but you can enable it to be viewed.  In Outlook go to the subfolder properties and click the Outlook Address Book tab.  Place a checkmark in "Show this folder as an email address book".  This will enable you to see the folder and contents in OWA.  This way you can choose a contact from this list before writing the email.

Simon, thanks for making me double-check this.  It is a little different than I mentioned.  But in OWA if you open a contact in a contacts subfolder there is an email icon that says "send mail to contact".  Click on this icon and it will create a new email message with this user in the To box.  If you want to send an email to multiple users in a contacts subfolder you will need to do what Simon suggested and copy and paste their email addresses into the message.  Hope this makes sense.
