This is a very bad configuration. But the user does not want the contacts from his PAB in his standard contacts. Is there a way to create another set of contacts, that he can access from multiple locations at multiple times like the normal contacts?
Right now if he loses VPN connection to the shared folder outlook fails because its looking for the PAB, but without that the Contacts cache and can be used.
The ultimate question is how can I give him a second set of Contacts, he manages, no one else has access too, but wont prevent Outlook from opening if there is no network connectivity.
