Using Office Outlook 2007, I have set up the ability to share a contact folder with another user on our network (we are using Exchange 2010). THe contacts share fine, with the exception of one distribution list that is composed of other distribution lists. For example, we are a school and our " all school" alias consists of distribution lists for grade1, grade2 --etc. In the shared contact folder all the grades come across fine, but when I try to get use the " all school" alias, that is, when I send a message to that contact and expand the contact I get <unknown> placed after the alias names that make up that distribution list. It appears to be looking for the distribution lists in the main contact folder of the user that I am in, not the shared contact folder that I want to be using.

Any ways to share a distribution list that is made up of distribution lists when sharing a contacts folder?

Thanks!

The DL points to contacts andwhen the folder is shared, its not looking in the right place for the contacts.

It should share ok if the addresses are added to the DL, not contacts, but then you need ot physically change addresses in the DL when they change.

Thanks for the reply. I am trying to avoid making the user update their copy of the DL every time it changes. That is our challenge.
