SO if i understand you say when a user opens GAL he should by default see Contacts folder ... am i right if so

Outlook -> GAL -> Tools (in the GAL menu wizard) -> select the default view

Hi Rancy

my target is that my company users
will have one (primary) contacts list (should be the GAL)
and will display in the contacts tab in outlook.

Thanks.

You mean if a user clicks on Contacts he sees the GAL details or do you say that when i click on new email and click on TO or GAL i see the COntacts folder by default ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sir the GAL and OAB are stored locally on the server and not in some folder that someone can view so you can surely export the data to some Excel and create Contacts and then move them to a PF .... but there could be modifications all the time to GAL which wont happen automatically

hi Rancy

so you're saying that their isn't a way to automatic deploy a public contacts folder,
to the outlook clients for them to see it on the contacts tab ?

best you can have is to have all users add the PF Contacts folder as favorite
