Can Outlook 2003 Client Distrubution Groups within Contacts be transfered?

Hi,
I was wondering if Outlook 2003 Client Distribution Groups made within an individual's Contacts could be transferred to a different computer with Outlook 2007 Client.

I wasn't sure, but I thought that within an Exchange 2003 Server environment with Outlook 2003 clients & Outlook 2007 clients that the Contacts would be on the server and would be carried over with the user's mailbox.

Or will the user have to recreate their personal Distribution Groups in their Contacts again?

Thank you for your time.

If this is with Exchange then all email etc are stored on the server.

Yes it is an Exchange 2003 environment.  But does this include the Distribution Groups the user creates in their Contacts area?

Thanks again.

Yes their personal contacts list goes along with it. Don't believe then export their mailbox to .pst and then delete their profile and create a new one off of the exchnage server.

Ok, I did a test and it works as you mentioned.  One of my users is saying her distro groups did not carry over like they are suppose to.  Does anyone know why this might be?

make sure that the person has their contacts imported into their mailbox.

Ok, I have verified the distro groups are not there.  Could there be something that would cause the distro groups to disappear, other than an OE by the user accidentally deleting it.

only if the importing of the contacts into the mailbox didn't do it right or the user accidently deleted them. If you have the old .pst file I would try re-importing the contacts again.

Actually, there was no importing done.  It was all on the Exchange using MAPI protocol.  No pst files or POP3 protocols.  I moved the user from a desktop on the domain to a laptop off the domain.  The user says the distro groups were there before , but I cannot verify that.  I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced issues like this.  But I would have to believe the user was mistakened or accidentally deleted the distro groups.  

Thanks again.
