Reviewing the information in Technet for Address Lists and Global Address Lists/ Offline Address Books, I under stand that many Address lists, GALs and Offline Address Books can be created. You can also specify the default Offline Global Address Book for users.
My question is, if you create multiple Global Address Lists / Offline Address Books and choose one to be the default Offline Address Book for a database, can Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 clients to be able to see the other Offline Address Books? Will users be able to see a list of the other Offline Address books by going to the "Address Book" feature in their version of Outlook?
For example, you create an address list and Offline address book that contains North American mail enabled objects. You do the same for South America. You specify the North American Offline address book as default for the mail databases that contain North American users. When those users use Outlook in cache-mode to access the GAL, they will see the North American Offline address book, but can they also click to see the South American Offline address book?
Thanks for you time in advance:
