I'm using Outlook 2003 in a domain environment. Here's the basic scenario. I locate a contacts item in the public folder in the left pane of Outlook. When I click "add to favorites" it adds it to favorites. I then navigate to favorites but there are no contacts whatsoever.

You've added them to the "public favorites".
Expand the public favoties folder, right-click, and now select "Add to Favorites" to get them where you want.

I'm doing that... but when I go to the favorites and click on "Contacts" (which is what I've added) I see nothing

1. There is a public folder with contact items added that are NOT marked private.
2. This folder was added to the 'public favorites' folder.
3. THis public favorite was then added to your favorites menu and shows up in the Navigation Pane under "Other Contacts'.

If so, then check the contacts folder you initially addded to the public folder as being available as an Outlook address book? (Rignt-clcik - Properties - Outlook address Book - tick the appropriate box)
