        Jeremy,

        Thanks for that, but I had already tried google

        The results all seem to be 3rd party add-ons that you have to purchase, I thought that contact sharing etc, was included in exchange server?

        TIA

          Very well.
          Try this one. I believe the first two results are what you're looking for.

              I think you have two VERY good other options to do this. Don't share your personal contact folders use the shared Public Foldersin Exchange or looking forward to the future, share using the CompanyWeb Intranet (Windows Sharepoint Services). Both are fully utilisable from within Outlook.
              TIA

                Have I misunderstood something here? Only I thought, if you're using Exchange Server, the idea was to use the Global Address List... ???

                  The GAL needs to be maintained by admins. On Public folders (and personal) you can give groups and/or users read and write access to it for them to maintain.

                  There are other options of course and my description does not go into all the nuances. I really only touched the "tip of the iceberg". You can modify permissions so that users and/or groups can modify the GAL but it might not be worth the time to maintain this kind of setup nor would it be ideal to have regular users modifying the GAL.

                  It comes down to what technology best meets the needs of the business.
