GAL filtered thur OWA displays only 100 records?

It is the issue on Exchange Server 2003 (in my case). I instructed my users to filter persons to whom they want to send an email thru GAL while logged on as OWA clients. So, "Find Names - Web Page Dialog" is displayed. They type in for example Company name and click on “Find”.
I have more than 150 users listed and every one of them has defined (in AD) company name. What happens is that ONLY 100 users are shown!!! When I run this query within "Active Directory Users and Comp" everyone are shown.

Does anyone paid attention on this? Can some one tell me how to expand number of records shown in this "Find Names - Web Page Dialog" searching the GAL?

Thank you!

There is a limit on the maximum number of names that can be returned in the results. The limit is 100.
You can increase this using the OWA admin tool (free download from Microsoft). I would advise against changing the limit to a very large number, as this can cause performance issues with OWA. 200 should be fine in your case.

I am a little bit embarrassed … I have been looking in owaadmin > administration> Address Book settings so many times and I just overlooked it! Nevertheless, I did change number to 200 (as you suggested).

It could be useful to others who read this thread just to add that it is necessary to update RUS (Recipient Update Service in Exchange System Manager) to get this setting working immediately.

However thank you Simon.
