    Hi all,

    These are two sbs 2003 standard servers...
    WSS is installed on serverA (domainA of companyA).
    CompanyA and CompanyB (domainB of companyB) would like to share a common
    contacts list.
    So, my basic idea was;
    1. Create a contacts list on WSS on serverA, and enable anonymous access.
    2. Link to outlook this contacts list for users in domainA and domainB
    The result is:
    - everything goes fine for users in companyA
    - users from companyB can access the contacts list through their IE (using
    https and port 444); they do not need to provide any credentials as
    anonymous access is enabled
    - users from companyB can see the"link to outlook" button; and when they
    click on it, the contacts list name is added to their "other contacts" in
    outlook.
    - Very nice, but the content is not updated (it's just empty); and it seems
    that outlook cannot connect to the sharepoint contacts list on the companyA
    server.
    So any suggestions on how to do so?
    Or maybe shoud I forget about this sharepoint idea, and try something else?

    Kind regards,

    Thomas
