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

The article is for Outlook Express 5 but works for Outlook Express 6.

Hope this helps!
