Shortcut to contact in different folder - Outlook 2003

Posted on 2012-09-16

I have many groups in Outlook.  Is there a way to make a shortcut to a name in one group from a second group?

If I have two groups (say Business and Personal) and Joe Blow starts out as a Business Contact, but later I want him in Personal Contacts also.  I don't want to copy the contact, because when Joe changes his email address and I change it in the Personal Contact, I have his wrong email address in my Business Contacts.

I'm familiar with Distribution Groups but I don't want to go that route.

Outlook 2003 - Single copy - sits on my machine
Windows 7 Pro

Thanks in advance for any help.

    No support for that to my knowledge.  You could use categories, and organize that way instead of folders, but that has some drawbacks of its own - namely all contacts have to be in the same folder and if you sort by category, you can't sort by another criteria within the category (e.g., name or business).
