I don't believe you can, you will need to create a new folder and specify the content as contacts then move the data in to this folder.

Out of curiosity:
I created a calendar folder
used the MFCMapi.exe..checked for the attribute "0x3613001E" , PR_CONTAINTER_CALSS,PR_CONTAINER_CLASS_A...it showed ipf.appointment

Changed the current value from ipf.appointment to ipf.contact

closed and re-opened the outlook.
I got the same calendar folder now showing as the contacts folder.

Interesting, because that cannot be changed in EMS or in the console, I wonder if that's a supported method and/or if it will cause problems in the future?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

That is basically my question.  How do I "specify the contents as contacts".  I see no facility to do this.  Either before, during or after creating a new folder in Public Folders.

So, in outlook, right click the public folders select new folder and there is a drop down box asking you what type of public folder you want to create.  This can only be done in outlook.
