whats the best way to share shared contacts between users.

ie

setting up a distribution list for users that are in the company is fine.

but for managing email contacts for non company members is what they

want.ideally they want all internal users to be able to update and maintain

a contact list on non company users...

they are using various versions of

outlook, 2003 & 2007.

i was thinking of creating a company user.

then sharing his contact out to all users. and let them maintain it that

way...

any suggestions welcome/.

thanks.

While you can share a mailbox, adding that contacts folder as an address book is much harder.

See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/contacts/display-other-contacts-in-address-book/ for the steps.

I'd either use a public folder or sharepoint contact list... public folder would be prefered unless you have all updates for outlook 2007 and 2010 installed (there is a bug that marks all sharepoint contacts as 'always use RTf') Plus, i forget if outlook 2003 can connect to sharepoint lists.
