Hi Experts

Our server is running Windows SBS 2008. I removed a group of addresses through the SBS Console but the group still appears in the GAL.
How Can I remove it from the GAL?

Thanks

How long ago did you remove it - it may take a while for the recipient update service to remove it - it its on offline address book this can be as much as 24-48 hrs

Once you remove an object from Server, it will take few hours to get updated on the GAL.
Because,
Once you remove the object, the server should wait till the next OAB generation schedule.
Once OAB gets updated, then your client should have the updated OAB downloaded.

So I would suggest you to wait for few hours.
Or try downloading the address book from Outlook.

Tools -> Send/Receive -> Download Address Book

Good luck

Atleast the Outlook Online mode and OWA shouldn't show those removed address from the AddressBook
