Force update of Outlook Address Book
Posted on 2012-04-05
Look, I know there is a host of articles out there on this, and I've spent hours searching and trying to make this work: I can't. What am I doing wrong?
I added two new mailboxes in Exchange Management Console (ES 2007). These new accounts also show up in AD, as expected. Those entries have been there for 2-3 days. I can go back into EMC and see them now, but they do not appear in my Outlook Address Book.
So, I go to Exchange Management Shell and do this:
update-GlobalAddressList -Identity "default global address list"
- I type the above literally - am I supposed to use something else for the -Identity value?
- it thinks a moment and returns to the prompt, which I take as success.
Then I go to Outlook 2010, <File> tab, <Account Settings>, <Download Address Book>.
- I uncheck "Download changes since last Send/Receive"
- check "Full Details"
- click <OK>
- A dialog box comes up for a minute or so and goes away. (We have 300 or so mailboxes, which I figure is neither trivial nor gigantic, so a minute seems reasonable to generate)
Well, neither name is in my Outlook Address Book, nor, of course, will typing the name resolve into the e-mail address.
(We have just the one Exchange Server 2007 machine, no other apps run on it (although it is a DC, a condition we're going to remedy), ES runs on Server 2003. I'm using Outlook 2010 on Win 7)
Can anyone help?
