Hi

As long as you have the required permissions you should be able to make the change to the title in the organization tab. This can be done from the Exchange Management Console (from 'Recipient Configuration', 'Mailbox') or from AD Users and Computers MMC snap-in.

Usually this is done in 24 hours. But you can force the OAB (offline address book) to update using Exchange Management Console: Organization Configuration -> Mailbox -> Offline Address Book -> right-click and select Update. Wait for the operation to complete and then restart the "Microsoft Exchange File Distribution" service to force the OAB distribution.

Just to add to Alexey's comments above, you will also need to force the Outlook clients to re-download the Offline Address Book if Outlook is running in Cached Mode (which it does by default on a workstation). Outlook has its own internal mechanism when it comes to how often it updates the OAB (which can't be modified) so you need to manually download the OAB if you want to see the changes immediately.

To do this in Outlook 2010:
- Click on the Send/Receive tab in the main Outlook window
- Click Send/Receive Groups in the ribbon bar
- Click Download Address Book...
- Ensure Download changes since last Send/Receive is ticked and Full details is selected, then click OK
- Wait for the OAB to download then check your Address Book again in Outlook to see if the user's Title has been updated
