E2K3 OWA Global Address List Doesn't show everyone.

I am running Exchange 2003 running parallel with Ex 5.5 in a 2K Domain.  When I access the GAL through OWA, I can't see everyone in it.

What I am doing is I open up the GAL in OWA and in Display Name I enter space.  When I click on Find, it will list only ~80% of the users.  I thought space charcter was like the wild character, but apparently it's not.

So is there no way of viewing everyone in the GAL through OWA 2003?

The OWA GAL works via LDAP queries, so you have to specify a character that is in the users display name, first name, or last name.  The other 20% of the users probably do not have spaces in any of their names.  Either way, the OWA GAL wasn't meant to work like this anyway (listing the entire GAL).  It was designed for searching, not for browsing.
