Share Outlook Contacts

The owner of our company wants to share his Outlook 2007 contacts with his Assistant who uses Outlook 2003.  When I click on "Share Contacts" and try sending to the Assistant, I see a message "Error while preparing to send sharing message".

How can I share his contacts with her?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That won't work between 2007 and 2003, you need to add his mailbox to her as a secundary mailbox and grant view permission on the root and the contact folder.
Eveuger is correct. Not possibel, what version of Exchange are you using?

We were able to do it by going to his Outlook and adding her in the Sharing Permissions.
