    Hey all,
    assume we have a contact list in sharepoint (SP) with 50,000 items
    (customers). We also have a sales force of 100 people in several groups.
    Now the problem: If I share the SP contact list with the sales people via
    Outlook, everyone of them will receive the 50,000 names. How can I control
    the sharing of contacts between SP and Outlook so that every sales person
    only receives the customers for example related to the particular sales group
    or limited by other parameters.
    Thanks in advance, Harry

    Hi, STC-Harry,

    Though this is a "misc" issue because it spans multiple Office family
    applications, there tend to be more gurus in the specific programs that hang
    out in the forums related to Sharepoint and Outlook, specifically. If you
    don't get a satisfactory response here, try posting to one of those, where
    you might find people who can help with the integration.
