Force GAL to populate with new users

Tags:
Microsoft Exchange
I run all of my Outlook 2003 clients in Cached Exchange Mode because we are a very mobile company. When I add a mailbox to Exchange it takes a day for the address to populate to the Global Address List on my clients' computers. If I take Outlook out of Cached Mode, I can see the address just fine. Is there some sort of registry hack for this or something?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Generally Exchange will only regenerate the OAB every 24 hours hence why your cached mode clients can only “see” the new addresses after roughly a day.

The following article contains details of how the OAB is generated.
