Outlook contacts

By wesley.chin ·
Short of buying software, can contacts be shared? As in anyone can access the contacts information on other computers?

The place I work at does not have a server. Most of the computers are in a peer to peer connection. Through this connection, any connected computer can access any files on other computers that are in a shared folder. With the some exceptions, most of the machines are some flavor of XP. Two are WinME, but those machines are not used, at least not usually. The versions of Outlook installed are mostly 2003, some 2002 and one 2007.

You can send your contacts and

distribution lists to others, but I do not think that they can be shared as you request.

Using PST file

by oharaphil In reply to Outlook contacts

If you are using PST files you can try the following:

To import from the .pst file in one profile to the .pst file in a separate profile:
1. On the File menu, click Data File Management.
2. Click Personal Folders (if you have renamed your personal folder to a different name, click that name), and then click Settings. Make a note of the path to the .pst file.
3. Click OK, and then click Close.
4. On the File menu, click Import and Export.
5. In the Choose an Action to Perform box, click Import From Another Program or File, and then click Next.
6. In the Select File Type to Import From box, click Personal Folder (.pst), and then click Next.
7. In the File to Import box, type the path or click Browse to find the .pst file that you identified in steps 1 through 3. Select the option that you want, and then click Next.
8. In the Select the Folder to Import From box, click the Contacts folder that you want to import. Make sure that you click to select the Include Subfolders check box if necessary.
9. Click Import Items Into the Current Folder, and then click Finish.
Outlook imports the Contact items to the target folder.

Thanks for the reply.

I am trying to accomplish that remotely and automatically. As in one user can get the contact information in the Outlook of another user's computer.
