That works with Outlook Express only, and does not keep the address book updated. I need something/someway to keep the GAL sync'd with the local contacts of Microsoft Outlook 2003.

Definitely there would a third-party tool - Exchange along with Outlook (latest) editions wont allow you to personally store any information - apart from downloading entire GAL using OL offline mode.

I am sure you would aware of that.

Thank you all for your input. I have found multiple solutions myself. One of which is GALsync.
I am requesting points to be returned.
