Create new global address list in Exchange 2003 from an ldap server and keep it synchronised.

Does anyone know how to create a new global address list from an ldap server.

We are running a content management server which is populated with many contacts and can be accessed from within Outlook via LDAP.
We wish to have a global address list which can be constantly synchronised with our content management system.

Any ideas?

I don't think you can get Exchange to query an LDAP server.
Outlook can do it though. With some careful scripting you should be able to deploy a new Directory to the users.

You would have to get the Office Resource Kit tools download from Microsoft's Office web site. Free download.
There are tools in there that you can use for deployment of Outlook - one of those can probably be adapted to deploy additional settings in Outlook.

You can't use group policy as Outlook settings aren't held in the registry.
