Public folder Address Book not updated

Hi All,

We have an Address book located on the Public Folder and for some email addresses in there, they don't show when you search it from the TO Field in a new email ? but they are confirm in the address book

Not a big deal since they can type the email manually but some like to choose it directly from the address book, just annoying I guess

Thanks

can you check OAB last update date. Goto to Exchange server, where you have OAB hosted. Check the folder or file modified date. Also check application logs for OAB error. Normally updating OAB fixes this issue.

In that case, you must check your OAB Generation schedule. If its set to run once every week you may not see the changes until one week. You can run Get-OfflineAddressBook | Select Name,Schedule for Exchange versions 2007 and above to find the exact OAB update time.

This question can be close, looks like I was updating a copy of the address book and not the actual one
