Adding Customer Contacts to a Custom Address List Exchange 2007

Hi All,

We have an SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 I did it in 2003 OK a while back, but getting no where in 2007

We want a way to allow users to populate maybe a public folder with customer/supplier contact details, and then some way for this information to be selectable in a custom address list from Outlook for all users, is this possible or is there a better way?

Many Thanks

From Outlook, you can create the PF Contact and give permission to all user, so they can also modify it.

Good day,

Unfortunately, THe "address list" is a list of active directory objects. Generally, you want to keep only memebers of your own comany in Active directory.

HEre is an article to import mail contacts into your org. That said, its a little fuzzy in my mind about the mail piece of this. While they can show up in a Global address list, I am not shure if they can be coordinated with an "external mail box"

I dont have time to try it for you but i did reseaarch it. It look like the mail would go to the mail user you create (internally) and then you can forward it out to an external recipient.

If you ask me- that is weird. but if that is whart you want to do. then have at it:

I hope this helps

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi All

Sorry for the delay it was a little while ago - in the end I think we created a contacts public folder which does the job, so they select contacts from within there,

if its OK I'll split the points,
