Hi all,

We added several fields to contacts in the standard form (design mode). We
want this form to become users' default conatct form. Also, old contacts are
able to launch from this new customized form. are these possible? exchange

Yes. This is possible. You need to change the form on the folder properties
and then run a program to change the IPM form used on existing items. See
the last two sections at
http://www.outlook-tips.net/beginner/publish_form.htm for details and link
to the program.

Great thanks.

Do I need to go to each user's workstation to change the form on the folder
properties and then run a program to change the IPM form used on existing
items?

Is there a way to automate this?

Also, I need to change users' default outlook contact form and do you know
which form library I need to publish and all users will get the new
customized contact form instead of publish to each user's contacts folder?

Thank you for your help. (sorry and I am totally lost)
