After importing over 50 contacts in a public contact folder, I am not able to view them from the drop down list while composing an email. The 'Show this folder as an Email Address Book' had been already selected in the properties of the public folder. I was, however, able to see one of the contacts from the drop down list after I opened one of the contacts in the public folder and saved. It doesn't make sense to open each contact in the public folder and re-save them again to make them visible in the drop down list. Is there an easier way of doing this?

I am using Outlook 2003 SP2 with Exchange Server 2003.

Thank you,
Larry
