Adding contacts to Outlook 2003 contact list from Exchange 2003 Global address list

I am having an issue with adding Contacts to my Outlook 2003 contact list from our Exchange 2003 Global address list. Keep receiving an error dialog box that says " some names could not be added to Contacts. The action could not be completed."  This issue is not Global to my entire client network. Some clients have no problem adding to contacts from the GAL. Any ideas why this would affect some clients but not others. Kicker of it is I am the network admin so my AD login has admin privileges. SO this tells me it most likely is not a permissions issue.  Please help. Thanks, Ray

Another question posted this morning with precisely the opposite problem.

As mentioned in that question by TechSoEasy - check the OU delegation

Found my own problem...  Finally.. Turned out to be Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2003...  You can't have BCM installed on your workstation if you are using Exchange. Causes lots of problems.   I didn't realize it was installed. Must have reinstalled when I did An Office repair a while back.  So moral of the story if you are having the same issue of not being able to add Contacts from your Global Address List. Check to see if you have BCM installed.. If you do remove it.
