dating singlemen in paraguay site - Owa global address list not updating

Came across this issue at a clients, they where running Exchange 2010 although this would also apply to Exchange 2007.

When a user in Outlook was NOT in cached mode and they went into the Global Address List to select users to send an email to they would see accounts of people who have not got a mailbox attached to them, were not mail enabled and did not even have an email address associated to them.

This is the master list of all the Exchange 2007 objects, and the operating system won't let you mess with it.

However sometimes in large complex organisations we have a situation where a new joiner joins and their colleagues want to email them immediately, but they don’t appear in Outlook for them so they call the Helpdesk “Why isn’t Joe Bloggs in the GAL??

” Well, the truth of the matter is that our new joiner Joe is in fact , an update to the Address Book won’t become available to the user until about 48 hours after the change.

Before cloning the accounts he had removed the mailbox from the template account however it had left the Exchange attribute “Show In Address Book” populated. When in Adsiedit open up the Default Naming Context then open up your domain name and browse to the OU that the user is in that you need to modify. Right click the user account and select properties.

Then under the attribute editor browse down to Show In Address Book as seen below. Then simply remove the entries ( all of them ) that you see by highlighting and selecting remove. The next time your GAL rebuilds these accounts will be removed. If you are impatient like me you can drop into power shell and run these commands to update it immediately.

Download and install the utility, then inspect your mail queues, monitor the Exchange server's memory, confirm there is enough disk space and check the CPU utilization. Solar Winds provides this fully-functioning freebie, as part of their commitment to supporting the network management community.

Either leave the configuration alone, and just let Outlook users see the Default Global Address List; or else, take the time to study, plan, and test before you implement custom Address Lists.

Default Address Lists (See Screenshot right) Once you realize that there are a handful of built-in Address Lists, you soon realize that you could create your own Custom Address Lists.

These accounts why greyed out in comparison to the normal accounts.
