Search Address Book Global Address List & Public Folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having an issue with management where they want to have Address book open to a public folder with all the main saved contacts. But when they search a name they want to see the results of the Public folder if there is any AND the global address list. They refuse to manually switch the drop-down between the GAL and Public folder.

    How can they search "bob" and see all the matching results from both? Or if they are defaulted to show Public Folder and they search "bob" which there are no bobs it will not display the bob in the GAL.

    Any help is Greatly appreciated.

  • The only answer I can give you short of paying a developer a ton of money to write you a custom address book provider for Outlook is to move the public folder contacts into the GAL.  It would be a lot easier to write a script that synchronizes the public folder contacts with the GAL.
