I want to setup public folder that conains a contacts as the default contact folder in my outlook 2003. I have an enchabge 2007 enterprise x64 with all sp installed.
I want to be able to make my users open them outlook and see the public folder contacts in the first view and the default one.
Is the any way to make the personal contact folder of the users to dissapear, any registry tweaks or something that will work?
Thanks a lot!

I doubt that is possible.  Outlook does not allow public folder items to be the default folder for any items.

I can tell you the tweak of to disappear the contacts folder in Outlook Web Access.

Answer: OWA Segmentation.

Also, the answer to your original question - I believe it is not possible at all - since you can import data from PF / sync from PF into your mailbox database (your default contacts are stored in mailbox).

I can not consider OWA as default solution. Also user mailbox already exceed 13 GB and I do not want to import any more contacts to his mailbox.
Is there the a way to setup the rule which will be moving all contacts from mailbox to public folder?
