Exchange 2003, shared contacts, shared calendar and the iPhone.
Posted on 2012-09-03
I have a client running Exchange 2003, and all employees using Outlook 2007 and the iPhone 4. They want their employees to all share a contacts folder and calendar. The contacts folder should be their default. The real hard part is they want to be able to access the shared contacts and calendar on their iphone. So, I was able to mostly achieve this buy created a mailbox and giving all of the employees access. I then added the account to their iphones and to Outlook. (FYI, it was my understanding Public Folders are not viewable on iPhone without a third party tool)
The only problem I have now is when they pull up the address book in Outlook, the contacts list from this shared mailbox is not viewable. How can I add this into the Outlook address book as an option?
