We have been looking at ways to share contacts throughout the organization and someone suggested using the public folders.
I guess that this method would be suitable?
We have Windows server 2012, Exchange 2013 and Outlook 2013.

What are the steps required to share contacts in the public folder?

Thanks for that, I didn't realize it could be done through Outlook like that.  What about setting it up in Exchange?  Do you know anything about that?

Have you deployed modern public folders in Exchange 2013?
If not then you need to do that to begin with.

Be careful as it has changed from the previous versions of Exchange.
This is the main section on TechNet for Public Folders in Exchange 2013:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150538(v=exchg.150).aspx

You need to create the folder through Outlook though, so that it is of the type Contacts.
It isn't possible to create it through the Shell of the correct type.

Simon.
