Exchange 2010 -- I deleted a Distribution group yesterday and changed it to a public folder. Unfortunately the contact is still showing incorrectly in the GAL so when you email that PF it wants to go to that distribution group instead. How can I update that manually? I am unsure how long our replication is setup but 24 hours should be long enough

Normally a GAL updates every night. You can run a powershell command to update it:

get-globaladdresslist | update-globaladdresslist

This will force it to update but more than likely you are seeing the OAB so you will need to do the same command for the oab as well:

get-offlineaddressbook | update-offlineaddressbook

I would also check the logs to make sure you don't have any errors with replication.

the update should be pretty much instant. I would do the update-offlineaddressbook and download the new version of the OAB manually to check the change. Otherwise OWA uses only the GAL and Addresslists so that would be another quick way to check.

that is an issue with downloading the OAB. This could be a number of things depending on your setup but normally the best place to start is to delete the OAB and create a new one in exchange. If that doesn't work i would check the folder permissions on the cas server where the OAB is stored to make sure authenticated users is in there. If that isn't it then i would check your oab virutal directory URL but this seems to be your problem especially if things show up correctly in OWA.
