Outlook cached mode address book not updating

05 Oct

(or in 2010 from CAS server distribution point or in 20 from Public Folders) I have opened OAB from my mailbox and result is in the Picture Creation of a mailbox doesn´t updtate OAB itsetf. When prompted, enter sensitive information such as credentials or password only if you trust the remote computer and the application or script requesting it.

To create mailbox use command WARNING: A script or application on the FRONTEND1. Now I have tested if OAB change is reflected in client computer (should not be) And now I have downloaded new OAB to client and tested again One registry key setting and Outlook client will work online from Addres book point of view, BUT!

The Microsoft Exchange default is for this to update at 5 AM each morning.

In addition, if you are using Microsoft Outlook 2010 in cached mode it may be storing an out-of-date copy of the GAL.

The staff member may notice that when the address book is viewed in Outlook their name remains unchanged, and may do so for 24-48 hours.

A common reason for this is the offline address book (OAB) schedules that are in place for the environment.

In an Exchange Server 2010 organization it is normal for there to be some delay before administrative changes appear in the address book for Outlook users.

For example, a staff member changes surnames and the help desk updates their Active Directory account with the new name.

OAB is stored on Exchange servers (see my previous article https://ficility.net/2013/03/04/oab-differences-between-exchange-2010-and-exchange-2013-in-brief/) and downloaded to client once Outlook is configured in Cached mode.

It also creates a faster response time of the Outlook client (especially when opening large attachments) and gives the ability to work offline.

It does this by creating a local copy of the mailbox and synchronising the updates as needed.

You have set up Outlook Photos and added photos as you require, however the photos are not appearing in Microsoft Outlook 2010.

The Global Address List (GAL) has not updated from Active Directory.
