We use Exchange 2007, our Servers are 2003.  I have just installed Office 2010 on my desktop.
 I have loaded my photo in AD in the thumbnailPhoto attribute using a third party solution from
dovestone.  I have also made sure that ticked the 'replicate this attribute to the global catalog'
option in active directory schema.  The problem is that the photo does not appear in Outlook 2010.
Can anybody help.

Can you double-check the size/resolution of the photo?

By default GAL photo works only with Exchange 2010, not with previous versions of Exchange.
Check the below link at MS Exchange Team Blog Site.

You need to write a script to upload picture to AD to make it work with previous versions of Exchange. You can use the VBS script provided at below link.

I guess it does not work with Exchange 2007. We will be migrating to 2010 in about a 2 months. Hppefully it will work then. Thanks for the help.

It will work with Exchange 2007 so long as you have a 2008 R2 DC or have extended the schema using the 2008 R2 forest/domain prep tool. I'm unsure why this is required but many users that use 2003 DCs can't get this to work and when they add a 2008 R2 DC the photos start working so the schema update must be required despite the thumbnailPhoto attribute already being present. We also use AD Photos for importing.

Please check www.thumbnailphoto.net ! It will check all related limits for the thumbnailphoto image.
