Contacts not showing up in Outlook

By toejunkmail ·
Hey hope someone can help, I've been surfing the web, and reading forums to try and figure this out, but am stuck. Running exchange 2003 using outlook 2003. I creat a contact in AD using the users smtp email address. I log in as the user to test to see if the contact is there, and the contact does not show up. The users uses Wyse terminal, so the outlook client does not have the option of cahed mode. I've manually tried to update the RUS, and still the contact does not show up in the contacts list in outlook. Have deleted and re-created the contact, and same thing. I thought it might be some type of replicating issue, and thought, wait for the following day to see if it shows up, but still doesn't show up.

Any help would be great.

Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.

This outlook problem occurs because outlook requires few steps before your contact information is available for you to address messages by using your Address Book ...
