Problem With Shared Outlook 2007 Contacts

I have shared my Outlook 2007 Contacts with a colleague so that she can maintain a Distribution List of contacts in the folder 'Contacts'
However, she gets the following error message when trying to save new entries in Contacts:
"This distribution list is too large to save on your network e-mail server.  Remove some members or put some of the names into separate, smaller distribution lists that can then be added to this one."

The Contacts list is not that large.  I have checked the permissions and everything else and there seems not to be any problem.  Any idea where else to look?

What I would recommend is making sure that you have Office 2007 SP2 installed. Also make sure that you are not missing any other updates.

Take a look at this artical as it gives good detail on this issue and reasons why it can happen. Also have you thought about creating a DL in Public Folders?
