Exchange 2003 OWA GAL is not populated when selected to send an email using this address list.  Is there a way to configure to have it populate for users using OWA?

Check your offline address list settings in ESM; they should point to your GAL on your exchange server

Have tested the <space> idea and that does bring up the list but just one more step to explain to users on operation.  Have looked at Messageware and will dig deeper on this.  However, is there not a way to just get GAL to automatically populate in OWA?  Group Policy or something?

Nope.. just one of those quirks with OWA. The OWA GAL wasn't meant to work like this anyway (listing the entire GAL).  It was designed for searching, not for browsing. Keep in mind, that the space method won't always show all of the address either. :)

There is no problem with GAL. By design EX 2003 OWA dont support GAL publishing. what users can do is type recipients name (first few initials will also do) in To address bar and press ctrl + k which will resolve name from GAL itself.

If you want to show entire GAL to users then you will have to depend on third party application which integrates with OWA.

Full GAL display will be available in EX 2007.
