Exchange 2003 GAL/Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Need some advice on the GAL in Exchange 2003 on SBS 2003

    I have an Outlook 2010 Client that connects to this server

    When new contacts or mailboxes are added to Exchange 2003 they are not automatically viewable by the Outlook 2010 Client

    I have checked the Recipient Update Services and it is scheduled to update on a regular basis

    Please can you advise or help on what we can do so that directory information is vieweable sooner

  • Hello,

     

    Can the new users and contacts be seen in OWA? If so, this should be an OAB issue. Check the Application log on the Exchange Server and see whether there are error reports.

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    If Outlook is configured to run in cached mode is it using the offline address book as its address list.

    This offline address book is by default generated once each night/morning and will then be downloaded by the client some time during the day.

    You can modify the OAB generation time from the exchange admin program to speed things a little up.

    Can you say which machine is performing the OAG Generation?
