Outlook 2010 32 bit

My partner & I both run our own copies of Outlook 2010 (32 bit) on Win7 Pro platforms with separate Live Accounts.

No exchange server, just two free-standing computers.

I have read (although have yet to attempt) how two separate Live Accounts can share Calendars where both Account users can view one Calendar representing an amalgamation of the two separate Accounts Calendars in Outlook and on their Windows Phone.

Each Account user can only edit/delete appointments in their own Account - that is, having only viewing priviledges on the other Account's Calendar.

Question: Can this be done with Live Contacts?

Ideally, what I would like to be able to do is similar to the Calendar scenario above:

  • Allow both of us to view the amalgamation of the Contact lists in each other's Live Contacts (both on Outlook and our Windows Phones).
  • Do the above while only allowing the 'owner' of any given Contact to edit/delete their own Contacts, while the other has viewing priviledges only. New Contacts created by any one user would be held in their own Live Contacts, viewable by the other.

Is this possible?

It was in the past but I'm not sure if current versions of the software support it. You need to enable the share in Hotmail online and once you do, i think (but am not sure) that the connector will download the shared contacts. I'll look into it.
