I have taken over an account with Exchange 2010. They have a Shared Contacts folder that seems not to be a personal or global contacts list, but is shared. I created a new Exchange user, I think I have given all the permissions I should. The can access the folder thru the Address Book in Outlook, but cannot make it a Contacts folder so it would show up in the Contacts list. Also, can't get the "autofil" function to stick. If I create an email with a bunch of folks in it, then kill it, those names will autofil until I log out, then they go away. How can I make them "stick"? Tried opening Outlook with "Run As Administrator" but didn't help.

Thanks. Fairly urgent as temp staff will need to use tomorrow morning.

Shared Contacts should be done as a Public Folder, not as an additional user account
