    That is because recently mail enabled objects take time to reflect in outlook. my suggestion is to select download Address book option.

    Here is how to update the OAB:

    By default, oab is updated only once in 24 hours at 5am. To update OAB manually run:

    Get-OfflineAddressBook | Update-OfflineAddressBook

    I'm guessing you're trying to view the GAL with Outlook in cached mode, and you're just suffering from the normal OAB update delay. Exchange, by default, updates the OAB once daily, at night, and Outlook only grabs the updated OAB once a day at some time
    of its own choosing. You could just wait for the update to make it to your Outlook sometime tomorrow, or you could increase the frequency of OAB updates, wait for one to occur, and then manually download the new OAB in Outlook.


    Disable the outlook cache mode.
