    Share Contacts in Multiple Profiles? (MS OL 2003)

    I'm about to install MS Office 2003 Professional over the xp version, and I currently have two Outlook profiles that I use for different e-mail accounts. Is it possible to have only one Contact folder that is common to both profiles? If so, how do I accomplish this?

    Thanks.

    I don't believe it is, as each profile has its own .pst file. But you don't need a separate profile for each email account. You can have multiple accounts in a single profile. Just go to 'Tools|E-mail Accounts' and create the new account. If you decide to keep two profiles, one way to copy contacts from one to the other is to email them as attachments. In the compose window, select 'Insert' and choose "Item...', then select the contacts you want to copy. When received by the other profile, drag them (do not save as) to the contacts folder where you want to store them.

    I don't think this needs to be true, even if it is the default, since you can always assign the PST to receive incoming messages and otherwise behave as the default. Needless to say, I haven't experimented with it myself. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
