Setting contacts list visible within OWA

we have just installed a single sbs 2003 server, and setup the users contacts so that their windows address book is shown by default when selecting the TO button, when creating new mail. That works fine, however, when we access the mailbox remotely, we can see the global address list, and a contacts option, but both are empty.
How do we configure the OWA client so that it sees the same contact list, as when they connect via the standard Outlook 2003 client.

The address lists in OWA 2003 aren't as fully-featured as the Outlook ones.  This has been addressed by a third-party addin:

OK, I take your point, but we ca see the GAL and also a contacts file from the drop down menu. Do we just need to migrate all of the contacts into the other contacts file to make tem visible from owa?

I think that the only contacts you can see in OWA (other than personal contacts, which are only visible to the owner) are AD contacts.
