I am running Exchange 2010.  I have a couple recently added users that are either not showing up in the Global Address Book, or replying with NDRs to my internal users.  Initially, on client workstations, we went to outlook > tools > send/receive > download address book.  This took 20 minutes or so, but eventually it seemed to fix the issue.  Now, however, this doesn't work.  any ideas?

mboppe: i can successfully send through webmail.  this tells me that the address book is likely updating successfully on my machines.

arjun: i followed the steps on the link, including running the MS fix, and clearing my saved nicknames.  still receiving bounces.  we are running Outlook 2007, FYI.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

This means the poblem is with the outlook cached mode and offline address book.
Deleted a recreate outlook profile and see if that works.

There is no need to delete the entire profile - just delete the OAB files on a workstation. That will force Outlook to download a fresh copy.

It could be that the OAB isn't updating correctly, on the Exchange server run

get-offlineaddressbook | update-offlineaddressbook

Wait about 30 minutes then do the download again. Check the event viewer for errors during the generation as well.

Simon.
