Global Address List Update

By Working IT ·
I have 2 Domain Controllers. The first one is a PDC running Windows 2003 Server. The second one is running Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003. Everytime I modify an Exchange mailbox on the server with Exchange 2003, the Global Address List on Outlook at users' desktop isn't get updated until the next day.

Where is the update setting? Can I run the update manually?

This is by design in cached mode. You can increase the frequency of rebuild and download but it is not recommended.

If you want to force the reload you can by opening System Manager. Expand Recipients, click on Offline Address List. Right click on Default Offline Address List in the right pane. Click Rebuild. The Rebuild could take some time depending on how many users you have.

To get the new users to appear in outlook once the rebuild has been done: Open Outlook, Click Tools --> Send/Receive --> Download Address Book. Then place a check in Download Changes since last Send/Receive. Click OK. The new OAL will download.

This explains how the Offline Address Book works.

Hope this helps
