  • global contacts

    HI All
    ok i revised this....
    I have created in exchange 2003 under the all address lists, two new address folders, one called support and one called sales. I then went in under the user tab and set the users whom i want to give rights to access those folders. My problem is, when the user opens outlook 2003 and tries to add a new address entry to that folder they get this message...
    You cannot create entries for this address book
    Did i setup the folders in the wrong area? Should I have set them up under the global address lists? I would like them to be globally available to just the users that i assign to them.
    Any thoughts?
    Thank you

    Roy

    Re: global contacts

    TBH I have never tried adding contacts into the Global Address List this way but I have never seen any references to you being able to add contact this way in custome address lists.

    The only way I was aware of to update a sutome address list is via the Exchange System Manager and changing the properties of the custom address list.

    If you need help with this then please let us know

    Thanks

      Who said you could add ANYTHING to an Address List? You can't. an AL is an LDAP query for objects in the AD.

        Is this refering to my responce or the original question?

        If it was me then I didn't say you could add anything. If it was not at me then ignore this

            ok i figured it out. I ended up using the public folders, creating the two folders i needed as contact lists and then added the users i needed and gave them appropriate rights. THank you!
