Windows2000 Exchange Address Book

On Exchange2000, my users require a server based address book which they all have access to so they can edit/delete entries. How do you set one up ?

Hi

Usually the Address Book that is in Exchange server is Global Address Book and that will be maintained by Exchange Admins & users will not be having any deletion rights.

If they need a simple address book and the group is very small , then you can create a shared address book like .pab and give share rights to everyone.

Hope this may be one of the possible solution to your problem..

Re: Windows2000 Exchange Address Book

Like said above. I would recommend you have a global address book that included all the employess and permant addys but no edit right to users. Let them access the Global but also give them a pesonal address book. You are asking for trouble if you let them add and use the Global. Plus some people may feel that the contacts they have is what gives them an advantage over a rival and will not want to share them. Also make sure they cannot download the Global address book to a PDA.

Re: Windows2000 Exchange Address Book

Can I suggest that if you want a shared address book, that you set-up a Contacts Public Folder.

I manage a 400 user Exchange Server (5.5), and if any department needs to share contacts or calendars then in my opinion this is the way to go.

To create this, from Outlook right-click the Public Folders/All Public Folders/Create Subfolder. I normally create a standard (mail) folder which then contains all the shared contacts or calendar folders.

Of course you need to have permission to create the folder, but once created, you can then assign the appropriate permissions to the users that need access.

Hope this makes sense....
