Could be several reasons. Are any of the users in question hidden from the GAL?

Are there any errors relating to the recipient update list (MsExchangeAL)?

Make sure you perform all the steps noted here - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/guides/ExMgmtGuide/cf178f7c-80d5-460b-8878-453db7ede287.mspx?mfr=true

When I meant errors, I was talking about looking in the event log.

Out of curiousity, are most or all of these users new/recently added user accounts?

there are no errors on the server in the event log.  all these users have had mailboxes for months so none of them are new.  i have checked all the mailboxes and none of them are hidden from the address lists.

we have another address list that is called all users and everyone shows up in that one in both OWA and outlook.

in outlook everyone shows up no matter which list you choose.  OWA is the problem because we have 190 users and all of them show up in the all users address list but not in the global address list where i need them to be

Next step is to rebuild the Offline Address Book and then the Offline Address List.

In Exchange 200x, start ESM.
Open Recipients, then Offline Address Lists.
Right click on "Default Offline Address List" and choose "Rebuild".

Give it a little while to populate.

Also, Open Recipients, then All Global Address Lists.
Right click on "Default Global Address Lists" and choose "Properties".
Select preview and make sure all users are found.

Oh I just noticed you said it was Exchange 2007.

The steps are fairly similar:
Open ESM>Microsoft Exchange>Organization Configuration>Mailbox>select the offline address book tab>right click on your address book and select update.

For the Address list in Exchange 2007:

Open ESM>Microsoft Exchange>Organization Configuration>Mailbox>select the address lists tab>right click on Default Address Book and select properties. Select preview.
