Address List

Posted on 2004-04-28
Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I have an exchange server at our main office.  At branch offices the users send/receive via the exchange server using pop3.  I need a way to share a Contacts folder in Outlook with all the users.  Each branch has a 2k DC with AD.  I have seen something about LDAP but could find anything about how to set it up.

What about setting up a Public Folder that can be accessed by all that has the contacts in it?  A public folder can be used as the Outlook ADdress Book on a person by person basis if they wish.

A Global Address List (GAL) only contains the exchange users in your organization (with some modifications based on internal groups etc)  Is that what you are looking for? If so:  Making the Exchange Server GAL Portable

You may add a LDAP directory
