We have a Citrix Environment and using Outlook 2003. Our users are unable to add their Contacts as an email address book. The option is greyed out. I am aware how to do this in a Desktop Environemnt but not Citrix. Can anyone help.

THanks

when you say add their contacts as an email address book..you mean add contacts to theier address book?

Sorry, I wasnt clear. if you right click the users Contacts > Properties > Outlook Address Book there is an option here that adds the contacts folder to the address book. So when the users click To on an email they can select their contacts from here.

From http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HP052421351033.aspx:

... the Show this folder as an e-mail address book check box is unavailable.

Make sure the Outlook Address Book is installed by doing the following:

On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
Under Directory, click View or change existing directories, and then click Next.
If Outlook Address Book is not listed, click Add.
Click Additional Address Books, and then click Next.
Click Outlook Address Book, and then click Next.
Click Finish, and then restart Outlook.
