When it comes to share contact or contact group, Outlook’s inner “Share” button will cross our mind at first. Just like “Share calendar”, Outlook also offers “Share Contacts” for us. Superficially it seems very simple. However, if you’ve used it, you would find that there are a deluge of options to be specified after you click this simple button.
