Exchange 2010 Mail Contact not showing up

I have a number of users created on my SBS 2011 Server that have their Mail Flow Settings configured to forward to a contact. I set all of these up with no issues.

I am trying to add another one, but any new Contacts I create are not showing up for me. When I choose Browse to find the contact, they are simply not there in the list to be selected.

What should I be looking at here to fix this?

thanks!

Did you mean that the new Contact is not appearing under Contact in Address Book?

How about under Global Address List?

is it there in AD?

could also be that the OAB is not yet updated and you need to manually update it or wait for it to run the scheduled update time.

On the client Outlook change from Cached Exchange Mode to Online. That should download the latest changes for OAB.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I mean on the server, in the Exchange Console. I am trying to change the Mail Flow settings for a Mailbox:
Recipient Config - Mailbox - (right click user) Properties - Mail Flow Settings - Delivery Options - Forward - Browse ...

The list of ppl in AD comes up, but the latest contacts I've created are not there.

This has been sitting like this for a week, so I don't think it's just a matter of waiting for some scheduled update time.

Thanks!

Ok, I figured it out. Duh!!

I created the Contact in ADUC, but hadn't added the contact in the console - Recipient Config - Mail Contact

Thanks for the responses everyone.
