    Default Shared Contact Lists (address books) do not show updates

    We have installed Zimbra for one of our customers and they keep having a strange phenomenon with shared contact lists:

    If user A shares a contact list to a group of users G they will all be able to see the contacts and everything ist fine ... until user A adds new entries to the contact list he shared.

    All users in G will still see the old version of the list, without the newly added entries until they explicitly remove their shared version of the list and re-add it.

    How can I change this behaviour so that all updates will be seen by all users who share a contact list?

    Possible timing issue? How long are the users with the share waiting before they say the changes aren't showing up? Could be some caching going on. There have also been ongoing reports of address auto-complete issues that I'm not sure are fully fixed. Might want to check out bugzilla to see if you get any hits.

    OK, so not a timing issue. I just did a small test on my system (6.0.6 FOSS) and it seemed to work fine. Is it just one user's share that is having the problem or is it across the board? Maybe it is a 6.0.7 bug. Have you searched the forums and bugzilla for this issue? I just did a quick scan of the 6.0.8 release notes and didn't see anything, but there could be info elsewhere.
