Getting this message while downloading the Global address book.

Please suggest.


Thanks and Regards,

Hi Sami,

Have you tried to recreate the Outlook profile? After recreating the Outlook profile do you have the issue?

Try to configure the new outlook profile as default profile.

Cheers

Hi Viktor,

Thanks for your reply.

As of now three users are saying address book is not synchronizing in outlook 2016. four-five days back we created users account, which are not getting reflected.

Even I tried to download the address book, but unable to download the address book. Any idea how to manually push the offline address book and then automatically push the OAB from server side to clients MAPI

Kindly suggest.

Thanks and Regards,
Sami

Hi Jackie,

We are using Exchange 2016 on prem and its completely new setup on our environment. We repaired office 2016, but issue not getting resolved.

Do you know how to sync the latest address book in outlook 2016 forcefully instead of exchange 2016.
Ctrl+k not able to recognize in the outlook new email.

How to user prompt while trying to open outlook2016 on Local PC profile setup.

Office 2016 64 bit will be supporting for Exchange 2016 Enterprise edition.

Please suggest

Thanks and Regards,
Sami

Have you set address book policy in Exchange 2016?

"Users can only see a GAL that they belong to (the recipient filter of the GAL includes them). If a user belongs to multiple GALs, they'll still see only one GAL based on the following conditions:
The user needs permissions to view the GAL. You assign user permissions to GALs by using address book policies (ABPs). For more information, see Address book policies in Exchange 2016.
If a user is still eligible to see multiple GALs, only the largest GAL is used (the GAL that contains the most recipients)."
