Outlook 2010 - Cannot Search Shared Contacts

We have recently upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2010. As a result of the upgrade we are no longer able in Outlook 2010 to search in Shared Contacts as we did in Outlook 2003. When opening a Shared Contact list and putting in a search term the search defaults to 'My Contacts'. This behavior is typical with the 100 installs we have.

How can we search 'Shared Contacts'? Adding the Shared Conatct users profile to Outlook is not an option.

Have not yet migrated all the public folders. Still have a few user mailboxes to move.

The Shared Contact lists are user contacts that the user has assigned delegate rights to, not a shared contact list in Public Folders.

We are having a similar problem with users on Outlook 2010. Logging in the same account onto a computer with Office 2007 works fine, however.

When we search the share user's contacts folder it simply displays no results.

The resolution for the issue is below.

In Outlook select FileOptionsSearch > Change the selection for “Include results only from:” Default is All folders, Change selection to Current folder
You will still have the ability to edit the Scope of the search using Search Tools
