Hello, we have a hosted exchange service and I am wondering is there a way to import VCards into the Global Address List?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not likely. The GAL is built from AD accounts/groups/contacts in the Hosted environment, so any contacts that show in the GAL have to be created in a way that creates a contact object in AD. Unless you have access to an administrative powershell console on your hosted environment, there's no real way to do this using VCards.

Aside from manually editing each user on the Hosts server I didn't think there was any other option.
