Hello - we are on Exchange 2010 Server, using Outlook 2010.  This system migrated over from Exchange 2003 some months back, and everything has been working fine, with exception of a couple issues with the address book in Outlook not downloading through the Send Receive button, and not all contacts in AD are showing in Outlook.  Not sure what is causing this.

Follow below instruction in outlook:
- Click File Tab, Click on Account Settings, and then click Download Address Book
- In the Offline Address Book dialog box, make sure that the Download changes since last Send/Receive check box is unchecked.
- Click OK
- Click on Send/Receive

Verify address book lists all required address.

Are you distributing your Offline Address Book via Public Folders, or, EWS?

When you did the migration, did you switch the Generating Server over to your 2010 server?

When you did the migration, did you convert all your Address Lists to 2010?

I had this issue recently and found it was a permissions issue on the web.config file in the OAB folder. It should be set so that "authenticated users" have "Read" and "Execute" permissions....
