How to add contacts to GAL on Exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Receive a request from some of my remote outlook anywhere users

    They would like to have the contacts all in one place.

    Currently I have outlook clients running outlook 2003 to outlook 2010

    Exhange server is 2007 SP3 Enterprise 64 bit on a Windows 2003 R2 64 Bit enterprise server

    When you click on contacts that give you your personal contacts.

    Put when you compose a new email and select to you are placed into the Global Address List (GAL)

    Now you have to drop down and select contacts to see your personal contacts

    If there a way to have all contacts in one place?

    Can outlook be told to start in contacts (personal in place of GAL)?

    any ideas or thoughts

  • Hi,

    "If there a way to have all contacts in one place?"

    There is a "All Contacts" item in the Address Book Drop-Down List. You can find all contacts in your org by selecting it. I don't understand what else do you relly need.

     "Can outlook be told to start in contacts (personal in place of GAL)?"

    Open Address Book--Tools--Options--choose Start with contact folders--choose the Contacts item under the Outlook Address Book in the Drop-Down list.
