I need to save the global address list to a laptop with no network connectivity. I cannot put it on the network, there is no way. I need to update the contact list on this laptop with our current Global address list and I cannot find a way to save the current one as a pst.

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

From an existing client already on configured on the network.

Open Outlook

Move all of your existing Contact from your main Contacts folder into another folder so that the main folder named Contacts is empty.

Tools => Address Book

Show Names from the: => Global Address List

Click the top name. Scroll to the bottom. Shift-click the bottom name (to select all of the names).

File => Add to Contacts (this will copy the GAL to your local Contacts Folder)

Close the Address Book

Half-way done. View your Contacts to view the Entire Global Address List. =)

File => Import and Export

Choose your flavor of exporting and select the Contacts folder as the item to export, in your case, a PST file and save to desktop.

Copy PST to memory stick and give to remote client. Have remote client use Import/Export and import contacts from external PST file.
