In the file menu, choose Import and Export.
Export to a file.
Personal File Folder (.pst)
Click on the Contacts Menu
Save to an network drive or USB key.
Then do the import from the other computer.

You could either export contacts as a csv file and import that into the new computer.
Or if you are useing outlook exchange you could also share contacts with that user.

Sorry mistyfly, my bad for not seeing that you use SBS.
There is no easy way of sharing contacts on SBS.
There is two ways:
-Either you can do this with a script or tool you can find on the internet (perhaps)

or you can use Sharepoint if you have that.
You can then import contacts into sharepoint
Beware that this only works if you have sharepoint and outlook installed on the same computers

Never mind, I don't have sharepoint. I tried to do the import export method above with worked but it didn't copy over all the contacts, it didn't seem to copy the contacts that were in the orginal users subfolders?

Did you choose the right contacts when you choose what to export?
