Hi,

We have Exchange 2007 as the backend. Public Folder is setup to store shared contacts. Is it possible to set it as the default address book for Outlook 2007? We want to make sure that when user first opened Outlook 2007 Contacts, the Public Folder is automatically selected and when user tries to send email, it will look up in Public folder instead of choosing it manually.

By default, Outlook always go back to the personal contacts for the user for Contacts look up in email. We appreciate for your assistance.

Thanks a lot!

Yes open the address book, Select Tools, Options, and in the "Show this address list first" select the address book you want to show first. Then select apply. Now, when you select the phone book icon, the one you set will show by default.
