Exchange Global Address Book

We recently moved from an ISP email situation to Exchange 2010. The server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard with Exchange 2010. The former setup included .pst files for each user. When we switched to Exchange we imported the .pst file to each user's account. The problem relates to one user adding a new email contact that is not propagated to all the other users. So I believe we would require a "Global Address Book" for all users to be able to access. Right now there are two address books for each user - the regular "Contacts" and the company's address book. What would be the best way to make this work?

Is there a way to import or migrate the existing client address book (Acme Address Book) into either a GAL or a public folder?
Gareth Gudger

You can import them if they are in a CSV format.

We have created a shared folder (acme shared folder) with a "Contacts" subfolder. The companies clients are listed in the "Contact" subfolder. When one user adds to the contacts - all users can see the change. The only problem relates to this address folder - it is not showing up in the "address List". We want this address list to be the first available one when clicking the "Address Book". Please help.

Hey Generator,

I think this is what you are looking for. It documents making the change in Outlook.
