Outlook Address Books on SBS 2011

I have a user - SBS 2011 - with a requirement for a list of say 500 contacts to be available for all users on the domain (12).

They are all using Outlook.

It needs to be editable so GAL is not appropriate.

It needs to be available via OWA as some of the users are remote.

How do I achieve this?

Thanks John Slatem

I think you'll need to use a Public Folder configured for contacts, and then include that public folder as an "Address book" in Outlook.

Whether that will work with OWA I'm not sure.

Please give it a try and let us know if this also works for OWA.

Yes you are right in both counts. Firstly got the address book showing via the Public Folders list and then set each user to show the folder as an Outlook Addressbook BUT it doesn't work in OWA which is a pity.
Happy to award the points for the first solution and then list the question re OWA as a second question. Is this OK?

Thanks John Slatem

Just a thought... Would Outlook Anywhere, what we used to call outlook over http allow your remote users to use the public folder?

No VPN required, or OWA, just a PC on the Internet, your SBS certificate and outlook client...

It's what I use when I'm at a client.
