User not showing up in All Users

We have a user that is not showing up in the All Users list but is in the GAL.  Running Exchange 2007 on 2003 Enterprise 64-bit.  Most clients are using Outlook 2013 with some 2010 sprinkled in there, but neither Outlook client can see the user in AUL and it is just a single user not listed.

Hi,

how are you, are you sure you don't have the user hidden from the GAL?

For a user to be part of All Users list, the account must meet the following requirements. Have you checked if the user shows up in any other address list than "Global Address List"?

((Alias -ne $null) -and (((((ObjectCategory -like 'person') -and (ObjectClass -eq 'user'
) -and (-not(Database -ne $null)) -and (-not(ServerLegacyDN -ne $null)))) -or (((ObjectC
ategory -like 'person') -and (ObjectClass -eq 'user') -and (((Database -ne $null) -or (S
erverLegacyDN -ne $null))))))))

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

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

What are the other address lists? A user should not be in seen in All Rooms or All Groups or All contacts lists. Also, please verify if the user object meets all the conditions specified.

@ Jorge
      It is not just me.  User is not listed under All Users for anyone.  User is a few months old now so not really new.  Newer users are listed in AUL

@ Rajitha
      User is under GAL and is also listed under heading All Address List> All Users(yellow) , but not under the heading All Users(red pointer) ...see pic

It appears you have another GAL with name "All Users". Does not appear to be a default address list. Please check on the Exchange Management Console->Organization Configuration->Mailbox->Address Lists tab.

Also, check the address list membership for normal mailbox and this mailbox

Get-Mailbox alias | fl addresslistmembership

I am guessing the "All Users" is probably a legacy folder from 2003 migration.  Address list membership is same as mine, which works correctly.

OWA uses Default GAL so she is in it.  How could I change it so Default GAL is what Outlook uses instead of "All Users"?

In Outlook, click on Address Book->Tools->Options. Here, you can define the address list where outlook should look first. I would suggest you get rid of that legacy folder if you have decomissioned Exchange 2003 already.

That will work.  Do you, off hand, happen to know where in the registry I can make this change, so I can make it globally without having to do each pc?
