Accessing address book from limited account

  [DELETED] 01:29 23 Dec 2003

My wife is not really very PC literate, and has in the past been reluctant to use it, only using it to send the odd email (using my account). However, more recently, with the arrival of a new baby, she is using it far more for sending photo's to friends and family in Germany. My question is; How can I make it possible for my wife (from her Limited Account) to access the address book in my Administrator Account. Placing addresses in the Shared contacts folder doesn't work.

Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year to all

i may be wrong but i dont think you can do this.

set up a new email account for you wife in her own limited user account and then import the address book from yours to her account.

It is easiest to import your address book info -
open OE as your wife and then select file / import / address book.

If you are not sure of the location of your address book - do a search for *.wab (you may need to include system files & folders in the search scope)

Thanks for the replies,

I'll give the suggestions a go (when I have half hour to spare...what with the usual last minute Xmas panic)

Thanks again
