Would like to have one shared contacts group in Outlook where I'm the owner and all should have full access to make changes in this contacts list. Can this be created on the server or does it have to be created from my Outlook and then shared?

Hello,
if you mean a group of contact you can create a distribution list from ad & exchange.

if you need to share a contact list, you can do that with the public folder, so you just have to create a public folder (be carefull to select the correct type "contact folder") and then put the contact there.


that's all!

Several ways to do this, but I'd probably look at creating a contact public folder (since you posted to the Exchange zone, I assume you are running Exchange...) or, alternatively and my current preferred method, SharePoint 2007/2010 and Outlook 2007/2010 has great integration so you can create a shared contact group in sharepoint and link it to outlook easily. Earlier versions of sharepoint and outlook have *Some* integration, but until 2007 it was too limited to be widely adopted. But now I think it is well worth encouraging people to take a look. It provides a nice web-based and outlook-based solution with very granular security controls.

if all of the members of the group exist within your global address book you can simply create a distribution group that you manage
if some of the members do not exist in the gal, then you will need to use either the previously mentioned public folder or sharepoint option
