Can we "check names" against a public folder contact list in Outlook?

We use outlook for email and we have setup a public folder that contains client contacts, etc. When drafting a new email message is there a way to have the "check names" feature look in the public contacts folder? Currently "check names" checks against the global address book where all of our internal domain users are listed and against the outlook user's contacts folder in their exchange mailbox.

Nice and easy:

Open the public folders properties, and select the "show this folder as an email address book" in the outlook address book tab, then go in to your address book in outlook, then into options of the address book and setup the checking of addresses there.
