I have updated a contact on Exchange 2010. Under organization Configuration -> Mailbox -> Offline Address Book, I have run "Update".

On Outlook client, I have download the address book again. (with option "Download changes since last Send/Receive") but it doesn't show the latest changes. Any idea ? Where can I check whether address book has been updated  ?

Thx

Hi,
Try this command

It depends on whether you are running Outlook in online mode or cached mode.

If online mode, you will see the new contact immediately.

If cached mode, it will take a couple of hours before OAB will be updated.
