Are your users running in cached mode? If so, this behavior is normal.

This is normal behaviour between AD and Exchange. When you create a new user you will not see the user in the global address list until AD and the global address book are synched. This process is usually around 24 hours.

Well if you wanted it to update you could try forcing it to update its offline address book.

On the Tools menu, point to Send/Receive, and then click Download Address Book

[1] Configure the user(s) in question to not use cached mode for their Outlook profile. (Will have a performance hit when using low-bandwidth connections.

[2] Instruct the user(s) in question how to update their Offline Address Book manually when required.

[3] f you are unwilling to use options 1 or 2, then assuming your email addresses use a predictable syntax (firstname.lastname@company.com), post instructions on your Help Desk FAQ/Sharepoint/whatever to use the SMTP email address until the user appears in the GAL.
