Hi
I have a customer with to Xp machines networked together using peer to peer.
They want to use the same contacts book in Outlook to prevent duplication and make life easier. Is there any way this can be done over a network?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Depends on what version of Outlook - see if <a href="http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/share.htm">this</a> helps.

Hi
thanks for your reply. I have checked the link you suggest but it seems to take you to a page and thats as far as I can get. The link to net folders doesn't work.
The Outlook version is Office 2000.
Any other suggestions on how to share contacts over the network would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmmmm ...... I clicked the link just now and it came in for me. Here's the link again, in case the server was down when you tried:

http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/netfolders.htm

In the meantime, here's a copy/paste of the information for you:

<b>Outlook 2000:</b>

Net Folders is normally installed on demand, the first time you use the feature. You can also explicitly install it by running Outlook setup again. See <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=222309">OL2000</a>: Net Folders Feature Not Retained After Upgrade.

Outlook 98:

Download the Net Folders component from the Web or CD, following the instructions on our Components page.

Mail server:

You must be able to exchange e-mail with the people that you want to see your Net Folders. If you want to use Net Folders in your office, but don't have e-mail connectivity there yet, check out these solutions:

Group Internet Services

To use a Workgroup Postoffice

Contacts:

The people you want to share the folder with need entries in your Contacts folder marked so the messages that Net Folders sends will go in rich-text format.

<u>In Corporate/Workgroup mode:</u>

In the Contact item, double-click each underlined E-mail address.

Check the box for Always send to this recipient in Microsoft Outlook rich-text format, and then click OK.

Close and save the item.

<u>In Internet Mail Only mode:</u>

In the Contact item, make sure that the box for Send plain text only is not checked.

Hopefully this helps. :) Let us know!
