What you need to do is set up a shared address book using the
server, an open-source facility for serving up Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol information to networks, that is routinely included in
Linux distributions. This needs to be done with some care on the
OpenLDAP end of things, because Micros*ft Outlook is unusually picky
about the LDAP schema. One hands-on guide to configuring the schema
is here: http://www.dclug.org.uk/archive-Nov00-May01/msg00253.html
You can find one general guide to setting up LDAP (server
_software_, in the form of a set of lecture notes I wrote about LDAP, a
year or so ago: http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/lecture-notes/ldap
An example of how to set up the _client_ (MS-Outlook) end of
(at a university site) is here:
Note that appending to the address book from MS-Outlook is
supported (or desirable, actually).
Good luck with the project. Expect it to take a while, to work
