Outlook Contacts Sharing


Outlook Contact Sharing

Applies To:

Outlook Desktop Client Office365

Outlook Contacts are stored in a folder within an Office 365 mailbox. They are saved as 'contact items'. The display of this folder is "Contacts - username@mc3.edu" If attempting to share a Contact or a group of Contacts within the Contacts Folder, the result is that you can only forward with no option to share.

To get around this limitation, you can take the following options:

1 - Share the Entire 'Contacts - username@mc3.edu' folder

2 - Create a new folder under contacts, add the contact groups to that folder and share this subfolder
