Force Add a user to the GAL
Posted on 2007-04-05
Running AD native, with Exchange 2000 on a Win2K box. Recently added a new user to the AD. User account and mailbox were created successfully, but the user was not added to the GAL. User can access his mailbox, send, receive, and can be added to and is visible in distribution groups. But the user/mailbox is simply not visible in the GAL.
I've tried regenerating the OAB, and have even deleted and recreated the account using the same username , but no luck. I could do a workaround and create a new account with a slightly different name and just add a custom smtp address, but I'd really like to fix this issue, or find out if it's even possible.
Can I force-add a mailbox to the GAL? And if so, how?
Thanks so much!
