Why isn't my Outlook 2013 Global Address Book updating?
Posted on 2016-10-06
I created a new distribution group on my Exchange 2013 server. I made sure "Hide this group from address lists" is UNchecked. Rather than waiting the day or so for the address book to update on its own, I want to manually update it so people can use the dist. list right away.
So I opened Exchange Management Shell and ran the following commands:
Get-GlobalAddressList (to verify the name of my GAL.)
Update-GlobalAddressList - Identity "Default Global Address List"
The Shell ran the little update progress bar, and when done I went to Outlook 2013 and did a Send/Receive, Download Address Book. In fact, I did it with both the Download changes since last update checked and unchecked.
However, my new dist. list still doesn't show up in the GAL. What am I missing?
