Adding email addresses to contacts in Outlook by right clicking

We are using Outlook 2007....... so when we recieve an email we can right click on it and then choose add to contacts from the drop down menu and it will add the email address to my personal contacts folder. We use a shared contacts folder in public folders. Is there a way to redirect the convenience of this right click and send to contacts, to the public folder contacts?

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.

Unfortunatley as the public folder is a Managed Folder on the Exchange Server, Within Outlook itself You Cannot.

However, there are 3rd party apps out there that can assist you in adding contacts to public folders
