This reduces network traffic and improves performance.
If you are in Cached Exchange Mode and your connection status is Disconnected, Trying to Connect, or Offline, you can see only the information that is in the offline address book.So there are three factors stopping you seeing that new user on the GAL (, however if that’s not an option, read on). Force your Outlook Client to Download the Offline Address book. Check that the OAB is getting distributed from the Exchange/CAS server. Note: Make sure the Generation Server is set to a server that exists, and it’s online.Support for Outlook 2000 was dropped with Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010 only supports Outlook 2003 (post SP2). In the diagram below you can see this server is performing public folder AND web based distribution, this is probably because you ticked this box when you installed the product.The contacts in your Outlook 2007 Contacts folder make up the contents of the Outlook Address Book.If you create other Contacts folders, each of these folders is also listed in the Address Book list, available for you to choose from.3)Exchange 2016 Mailbox Client access service queries Active Manager and finds out database hosting organization Arbitration mailbox.
4)Then OABGen Assistant from the Arbitration mailbox will provide the required information.
Make sure the OAB you are looking at, has been updated from the GAL. If using Outlook, query the GAL directly, or download the latest OAB. Before you do anything send the user you created a ‘Test Email’ from your own account.
If you are using Outlook 2003 or 2007 you may be in “Cached Mode”, and you are looking at a copy called the “Offline address book” This only gets updated Every 24 hours, and the copy on the server only gets updated every 24 hours at (by default).
5)Like with Exchange Web Services, Autodiscover will provide the Offline Address Book URL.
This request will then be proxies to OABGEN mailbox which had the OAB information and this information is served back to the client.
If your company has a Global Address List (GAL), you also see it in the Address Book list.
