I have 1 user that this setting in their Outlook 2003 is grayed out??
(Select Contacts, right-click and select Properties, select the Outlook
Address Book tab)

We are on a windows 2003 domain with Group Policies, but I don't see any
settings for this in any GPO's.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

This means that the person has not correctly configured the Outlook Address
Book service in the mail profile. See this:

Tell us exactly where the process fails and exactly what error messages you
receive when it does.
