You need to update the Outlook Address book locally in outlook. Use Tools->Download Address Book to force OAB update.

Hello,

Open the mailbox and click "Hide from Exchange address lists" on the General tab.

OAB will take up to 48 hours to get updated on all the clients.

so, if you don't have any OAB (Offline Address Book) issues, 48 hours after you delete the user it would be gone from all the clients

Log into the exchange management console, open recipient policy, find the user, and then right click properties, on the general tab, tick the hide from exchange address list box.

This should remove that user from the GAL.

you can test this by checking in your OWA, if the deleted user doesn't exist there then it is just an OAB refresh

I test already, only fully delete the user, then won't show on the Global address list.

if only disable the user on the control console in domain, it will keep showing there.

and by disable you mean you disabled the user account then and not the mailbox

in that case you need to check the "hide from global address list" in the mailbox properties of the user

Did you disable the mailbox or disable the AD account? When you say you are picking from the GAL, are you actually clicking the To button and viewing the GAL or are you starting to type in the To field and letting Outlook autocomplete? Outlook caches address and you would need to clear that cache on every PC if that is what is happening.

Have you disabled the AD account or the email account? It would have been a problem with the Outlook Address book locally. Try to locate the .oab file and delete it so that a new OAB will be downloaded.

no ,I didn't disabled the AD account, every time I create a new user email list, the Global address list will show right away, so it sync automatically, just don't know how to disable the GAL user list when the user leave company but still need to keep his information for a while.

You need to check the box on the mailbox to hide it from the address book.

already told you that, use the "hide from global address list"


EMC -> recipient config -> find the user go to the properties and click on hide from global address list
