Hi Guys & Girls,

We have an annoying situation.

In our small organisation, we have set up a Public Folder as a contact list for everyone to have access to, update and enter new contacts onto. Somehow, someone has downloaded a copy of the contact list to a local user account. and the wrong contact list has been updated continously.

I have racked my brain, and others, and one idea that has been brought up is Room Mailboxes.

We have a general mailbox set up where all emails will come in and go out from. When emails come in, they are placed into the individual members mailbox. When staff send emails out, they use the "other email address" feature to select the mail email address to be the displayed address.

Now my questions:


Can I use a Room Mailbox for a contact list only?


Can I import the two contact lists and configure it to use the latest version of each contact?


How will i delegate access to this contact list?
Thanks for any submitted views, opinions and questions.
