We are looking for a solution to the following problem:

We need to periodically export the GAL of a domain to a file, wich can be transferred to another domain, to be imported to a contacts list in a public folder. We are running Exchange 2003 in the first domain, Exchange 2007 in the second domain.

Are there any good tools available to do this process automatically? Freeware preferred :)

Hello,

While this isn't exactly what you want to do, one alternative is to use the Microsoft Identity Integration Feature Pack to sync the GAL from one domain to the other. This will create contact objects in the GAL of domain B for objects in domain A. Having contacts in the GAL provides many advantages over storing the contacts in a public folder and the sync process would be automatic.
