Hi experts,

I have Exchange 2003 and we have set up POP3 and IMAP accounts across our network. How can I get the Global Address Book to my users using a POP3 account?

We need to update the GAL manually to all users, is their any way to automatically sync address book from my exchange server to all pop/imap users.

Thanks in Advance

Gal sync is not allowed for POP3.
The only way you can try this - is by running LDAP query's.

PS: I think the better idea would be to have your POP3 users switch to Outlook via RPC/HTTPS
