Is there any way I can make Outlook 2003  search in a public contact folder instead in the personal contacts when you go to "Look up Outlook Contact"?

I am on computer with Windows XP Pro, Outlook 2003, on domain with SBS 2003 Exchange server

Thanks

Yes, go to the public folder contact folder, right click on it, properties, Outlook address book tab, make sure the "Show this folder as an email address book" box is checked.

I have tried this but it does not help.
Still Outlook searches only in the personal contact folder.
If you don't have the contact in you personal contact folder, Outlook says "Could not find a contact with this e-mail address"

Thanks
