I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The contact list will likely only be apvailable to those who are using the outlook within the portal,
In outlook pushing this info might be possible using a USER GPO.

Not clear the distinction you are making.

the default is always the off-line global contacts list
Vasil Michev (MVP)Commented:
I think what you are looking for is the "Always use the default account when composing messages" option under File -> Options -> Mail -> Send Messages. In addition, you can change the default list by clicking the Address book button, Tools, Options and adjusting the selection there.
