When sending an e-mail in Outlook , is there a way to just start typing someone's first or last name and having the contact / contacts show up from the global directory?

-without having to first send an e-mail so that it populates in the .nk2 file.
?

Thanks

enter the first or last name and then try pressing Ctrl+K and check if automatically try to resolve the name via GAL or local address book.

If a contact/ email account has recently been added to Active Directory then you need to update the GAL on client PC.

if I uncheck : Cache Exchange Mode - - and open Outlook , bottom right still shows : Connected to Microsoft Exchange.

It should say : Online With Microsoft Exchange

try recreating the profile

normally we should use cache mode as it caches the data to local HDD and allows faster searching.

Is it being an issue?
