How to create a distribution list/group shared across the domain?

Hi
Using Exchange 2010 in a SBS2011 environment.
I have a small domain with 10 users, for which i need plenty of contacts and contact groups to be shared and managed by everyone.
For instance, in the secretary's outlook, i have a list of 200 contacts from which she also built multiple groups. I would like those groups, with all it's contacts, to be available to everyone in the domain, and also to let everyone add/remove members from those groups.
What do i need to do in the server, and what do i need to do in the client's outlook.
Also, those shared contacts should be available in OWA and iPhones as well.

Thank you
Jaime

For Outlook and OWA access you can have this data in a PF and ask users to manager it there :)

For Iphone you will need to have this sync with the contacts within your mailbox itself ... this might need extra 3rd party software

Can i create those contacts in the Exchange Server myself, then have them update them or add/remove contacts and/or groups through their outlook?
Also, at least 4 or 5 users in the domain need the capability to update those contacts and lists...

But can they manage the ECP from their client computers or do they have to RDP to the server? That's why i asked if they can from outlook...

ECP is more of a web access like OWA and can be done from any coputer that has access to internet :)

Thanks guys.
Last piece in the puzzle: Rajkumar, how do i bulk import from csv into contacts/groups?
I have 4 or 5 different lists, each one should go to a group. A contact may appear in one or more lists of course

Great!!
Where can i see the list of available fields? I may need to enter mobile phone numbers and/or addresses as well.
Does it take care of duplicates?
Also, in order to create a group with the contacts that are in this csv, i do it manually through the ECP ?
I am still having many issues with New-MailContact but i will create a new question for it
Thanks guys!
