A client of me with Office 365 mail accounts wants to have a contacts list in Outlook that is shared for all of the users and can be easily changed when needed.
I would say a public folder is the best for this, but it can also be done using a shared mailbox.

what is the common idea on this?

If a document pops up that public folder is really used / advised for this then I would love to see this so I can convince the client to use a public folder :)

PS: Outlook for mac is used and 1 user does want his contacts list IN the MAC contacts app.
