    Default [SOLVED] Shared Address Books not displaying

    Hello all,

    I'm having a problem with shared address books. I have an address book, called "Faculty-Staff" which is shared with all users. They see it fine if they go into the Address Book section, and can browse through it with no problems.

    If instead they click on the "To" or "Cc" buttons in the compose window, they cannot. The Global Address book shows fine, but if you change "Show names from" from "Global Address List" to "Personal and Shared Contacts" it does not show entries from that shared "Faculty-Staff" address book - only non-shared contacts folders and "Emailed Contacts".

    Is there any way to have the shared address book show up or be searchable in this window?

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide. I apologize if this has been asked/answered but I have not found it through searching on the forums as of yet.

    Forgot to mention - we're on 5.0.5 but I'll be upgrading to 5.0.6 later to fix another issue.

    You should be able to type in:folder or tag:whatever - there's some RFE's open on browsing that I think if you'd like to search bugzilla.

    Wait I see what you're saying - sharing is a factor (thought you just wanted to know how to view specific folders) let me test a sec.

    Sry got sidetracked, works fine 5.0.6_GA_2313 or 5.0.7_GA_2351

    user 1 > create faculty-staff > create 'team alpha' alpha@domain.com > share with user2 as viewer
    user 1 > create staff2 > create 'team bravo' bravo@domain.com & 'team stealth' (no email) > share with user2 as manager
    user 1 > create staff3 > create 'team charlie' charlie@domain.com > share with user2 as viewer

    user 2 > accept all 3 shares
    user 2 > to: button > personal & shared contacts > alpha@domain.com, bravo@domain.com, charlie@domain.com show up
    user 2 > give 'team stealth' an email address stealth@domain.com
    user 2 > to: button > personal & shared contacts > alpha@domain.com, bravo@domain.com, charlie@domain.com, stealth@domain.com show up
    user 2 > to: button > personal & shared contacts > in:"user1's staff3" > just charlie@domain.com shows up
    user 2 > remove delete faculty-staff share (soft delete of mountpoint > trash - user1 would still see it as given permissions to user2) > alpha@domain.com shows up
    user 2 > empty trash > to: button > personal & shared contacts > no alpha@domain.com

    Let me know after you upgrade to 5.0.6 if you need me to retest with groups/public shares so we can get a bug filed.

    It seems to be working perfectly on 5.0.6. Thanks for looking into it! I'm marking this as Solved.
