But this is regarding the Contect and I spoke about the GAL.
Sorry if it wasn't clear.

The GAL resides on the server. You would need to copy those contacts to your personal contacts folder or create a "company contacts" folder in order to pull it off.

Unfortunately you can not use AD to accomplish this task.

Although I have not personally tried it, I have read that if you create a Public Folder and create a Contact for each member of your GAL, you can then add the image to the Contact in the Public Folder. Some people have had success in that the image will display when they receive a message from any user.

In this scenario you will have to remember to add any new user to the Public Folder.
