I’ve just set up Exchange SBS 2003 and am trying to set up a companywide shared contacts folder.
I would like to have all common company contacts stored in one folder that everyone can access. Users should be able to add new contacts that will be available to everyone, and also edit the contacts in there.
I’d like it to be the default address book so people don’t have to rummage through several screens to get the info, they can just type the contact’s name in the ‘to’ box in a new message as normal, and outlook will look up the recipient.
How do I go about doing this?
Also I have all the initial data to go into this company address book in a CSV file. How can I set up a system that can import this into Exchange / Outlook? I’ll need to re-do the import once a week or so to keep the data fresh, not ideal but it’s better than us having to load excel every time we want to find someone’s details!
