Why can’t changes made by one person in a Hotmail group be seen by others?

Ruth Muscat November 6, 2012

We use a generic Hotmail account in my choir, and since the switch to the new Outlook interface we’ve noticed that changes made by an individual to our contacts lists don’t seem to be seen by others in the group who access the same contacts list. Any idea why this might be happening and what we can do to fix it?

    Share a contacts folder with others
    This feature requires you to use a Microsoft Exchange Server 2000, Exchange Server 2003, or Exchange Server 2007 account. Most home and personal accounts do not use Microsoft Exchange.

    You will probably have to reconfigure every user.

    What is the connection between the new interface and the Contact List?

        He might be referring that the new look of Outlook won't affect the contact list.
