Offline address book not updating 2016
In a later section, it is explained how to modify this.
There are various Registry settings available to control or modify the update and download behavior of the Offline Address Book in Outlook.
If Outlook is left running constantly in Cached Exchange Mode, it automatically updates the offline address book about one time per day depending on updates on the computer that is running Exchange.
The offline address book size can vary from several megabytes to hundreds of megabytes in uncompressed form.
Frequently users report recipients missing from the GAL. Scenario:– Recipients are not hidden from Exchange Address Lists– Recipients do show up in the “All Users” Address List– Recipients do show up when Outlook’s not in Cached Mode– Recipients resolve in Outlook Web Access Some recipients may not be included in the Offline Address Book when it is generated, for a number of reasons.
This reduces the number of times the Outlook window might become unresponsive and the number of unnecessary connections to the Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory.
PNG It has been like this for a while now and hasn't error-ed out yet so I don't have an error message to go by.
In Exchange 2010 I seem to remember restarting a service, but I cant see any address book services in Exchange 2016 to restart!
Use Cached Exchange Mode but without OABTo always work with the Online Address Book, even when you have Cached Exchange Mode enabled, you can set the following Registry key and value.
Key: All Users or any other object type such as All Contacts, All Groups or All Rooms.
