How come I can't see my contacts when I press 'To:' in OWA / Exchange 2003

I have all my contacts on my Exchange account which shows up in Outlook and on my Windows Mobile phone and even OWA. But how come when I compose a message and hit the 'To:' button to add emails to send to, I can only see emails from that are on my Active Directory organization. I would like to send emails to people that are in my contact book. Is there any where to do this because this seems so natural. Hope someone can help.

In Outlook:

Ctrl + Shift + B (Address Book)

In Address Book:

Tools --> Options
In the "Show this address list first" selection list choose Contacts under Outlook Address Book

In OWA this is by design.  You need to input at least 1 character and press find.  Unfortunatly they could have made it easier

Good luck

Right click on the Contacts folder which you are not able to see, Properties.
Click on the 'Outlook Address Book'. Choose the option 'Show this folder as an Email Address Book'

Let us know if that helps.

Adding the option to show a folder as an Outlook Address Book has nothing to do with what OWA can see. OWA is hard coded to only allow access to the Contacts and Global Address List.
Can you see the contacts in the Contacts folder in OWA?

Oh yes I see the contacts when composing a new mail in OWA. I just had to drop down the menu from global address list to contact. Don't know how I missed that. Thanks!
