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?
