We can add contacts to public shared contacts folders but some names are not showing up in the address book as a recipient for sending email.

Please provide outlook and exchange verions.
Are the errors occuring on the same client or on different clients, is there any combo that works. Are the contacts being added manually or they being generated from an import or a mix?

Have you added the PF to the address book list ?
Right Click the Folder, Properties, Outlook Address Book, Tick 'Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book'

Just found problem, entries that were not showing up in Outlook did not have email address listed on contact. Adding address solved issue.
Sorry for being dim and missing this.
