I created a user a few days ago, but he does not show up in the Global Access list. He is showing up in the all users list. We recently upgraded from Windows 2003 SBS Server  to Exchange server 2010

What your saying is OAB that Outlook cache users use

What is the generating server for OAB ?
Is the LZX files getting generated on Mailbox & CAS servers ?

Ya its by design, CAS server waits till the polling time period to update the OAB.
You could do it manually bu using below command on EMC

update-filedistributionservice -identity Servername

I ran the following command;

 update-filedistributionservice -identity Servername

forced Outlook to down load the Global Access Book.user does not show up.

I only have a single exchange server so the OAB is on that server.

Integrate social media with email signatures

Is your company active on social media? Do you also use email signatures? Including social media icons in your email signature is a great way to get fans for free. Let all your email users know you’re on social media quickly and easily, in a single click.

But need to check if its an issue with Mailbox server creation or CAS distribution

Check two folders "ExchangeOAB" (Shared folder) ....... OAB folder in CAS folder, they should both have  afolder with some GUID value and LZX files inside them for recent dates\today

The Client Access folder has current LZX file, but the Exchange OAB file is a month old.

Looking at the files being out of date I found the System Attendant service was not running so I started the service, Updated the Of line address book, ran update file distribution service  to synchronized it with the OAB folder, when I down loaded the Address book all the user is now there.
