In my office, we have 18 workstations connected via the LAN to a server running MS Windows Small Business Server 2003 and is the domain controller as well as central storage for everyone on the domain. All the computers have MS Office 2003 Professional with Outlook's Business Contact Manager and the latest updates from Microsoft.

When an employee leaves the organization, their e-mail address is deleted. We have a rather high turnover rate in some departments and as a result I am regularly deleting e-mail accounts from our ISP. The problem is that as employees come and go, people's contacts lists get out of date fast.This isn't a problem for me because I update my contacts folder every time I add or delete an employee. What I'd like is to have a central Contacts folder reside on the server that each user's Outlook program would use in addition to any personal contacts they may have.

I looked into the Business Contact Manager but I couldn't make much of how it was supposed to work or if we needed to buy addidtion software for the server (MS Exchange Server?).

Could someone shed some light on this for me? All I want to do is have everyone's Contacts folder up-to-date! :thumbsup:
