Users access an application via RDP on a Windows 2003 Server.  There is a fax component that uses Microsoft fax.  The fax contact database is pulling from the Outlook Express address book.  The problem is that each profile/username has a different Outlook Express contact database.  

Is there a better way to do this, or is there a way to get all profiles to access the same OE contact database?

You can set up a .WAB file on the server and have everyone point to the Windows address book.  Here is how to change the location of Windows Address Book
