How to push a contact list to specific users in exchange 2007

Hello Everyone,

I have a public folder on my exchange server that has a master contact list for all employees of the company. As people come and go or move this list gets updated all the time. I want to know if there is a way to push these contacts to specific users. I currently have to mount each mailbox on a client and copy them from the public folder to their contacts folder. This is starting to get very time consuming. Please tell me I can do this with a few clicks LOL

    Nothing native to do this.
    The best you can do is use a third party product such as Add2Exchange from diditbetter. That will sync the Public Folder with specific users Contacts folders.

    The other option is to just add the public folder as an Address Book. Add the folder to their Favourites, then right click on the folder and choose to display it as an Address Book. It will then be available to them through Outlook.

    Actaully, any particular reason the users can just reffer to the Public folder for the contacts should they need them

    Realistically this is what the public folder is for, isnt it?

    I want the contacts to go into their local contacts so they show up on their phones.
    I don't want them trying to do it themselves because that would create a help desk nightmare, you guys should know better to think end users can think and do for themselves LOL. I want to try the add2exchange tool but that diditbetter's site is down. Does anyone know a place I can get it?
