For starters you need to install Microsoft Mail which you can find on the Win98 CD in the \tools\oldwin95\message\us folder. Be sure and read the wms-fax.txt for info on how to install. Make sure to setup a mailbox account for each computer on your peer to peer that you want to share the contacts with. Then from within Outlook 2000 go to Tools->Options->Mail Delivery tab and at the bottom there is a Button that says "Reconfigure Mail Support.." That should be set to Corporate or Workgroup. Thenunder Tools->Services you need to add Microsoft mail. When you try to share the Contacts folder an e-mail will be sent to the person you are trying to share with and then that machine must reply to the e-mail for the sahre to take place. Hope I didn't leave to much out. E-mail with any questions. Jerry

If you are not using Exchange Server I recommend using Net Folders. If all users are using Net Folders for the "shared" folder each user will have get copy of the new/modified items email and incorporated into their personal folder.

To share afolder select the folder and click File, Share from the menu. Follow the on screen instructions, add your user email addresses, set their permissions, describe the folder and click Finish.

Note: it has been my experience that only new and changed items get exchanged. You may need to do an initail export and import to populate the other PC's.
