Randy,

Depending on version... in 2010, you can right click on the group in your address book and choose Forward Contact as an Outlook Contact, then mail it to another user. You should be able to do something similar in older versions as well.

If that doesn't work, you can always export your address book to a file, mail that file to another computer (or user), and import it from there.

Do either of these sound like what you're looking to do? Please let me know if you need any additional help - I can give you click by click instructions on either method.

I have verified through some quick testing that if one of the contacts within the group does not exist on the target PC, it still will not exist on the target PC; but you will be able to access the properties of the "missing" contact, simply by choosing that record within the group - if that makes any sense. You can then send that specific contact to yourself as an attached Outlook Contact, and pull it into your PAL from there... if you only need the Group itself, that's a couple of steps you can skip.

Good Luck!Rick

I just found free Outlook add-in for Outlook Contacts sharing vCard Wizard (http://www.vcardwizard.com/). Using this tool I can send unlimited Outlook Contacts as vCard files by email (in free version of vCard Wizard each contact is added as separate attachment, using Pro edition you can send all your contacts as one vCard file, but I don't mind sending all contacts as separate email attachments). Huge advantage of this tool is that you can access all contacts details (address, emails, phones etc..) not only on Outlook but open it on you mobile device. Also there is an option to export contacts to vCard format. But adding contacts into new message directly from Outlook address book is more convenient for me.

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.

      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      I am using Outlook 2003.I have huge numbers of .pst files . I want to manage Outlook by dividing PST files by Folder. But i don't want to compact files.
