Migration is completed Successfully. I can Send and receive the mail from exchange 2003 forest to exchange 2007 Forest. Now my problem is that After the migration,Users in exchange 2003 can not see email address in GAL for migrated user. I have also tried to add a email contact in Active Directory on exchange 2003 forest for that user which i moved in Exchange 2007 and i rebuild the GAL several time. I can see mail contact when i go to properties of GAL and click on modify but outlook users is unable to see new contact in Address list

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

It sounds as if the users are taking their GAL information from a local copy that has not been updated with current information. Is caching turned on? Are your users running .OST files?

This is a pretty old question. How about you tell us how you answered it?

    You mentioned migrating to a new forest. Does that also mean you have migrated the mailboxes out of the original exchange organization into a new (completely separate) exchange organization? If that is the case, I would think that you wouldn't see them in the global address list because that would only dynamically contain the people, contacts, and distribution lists in your current organization and forest. You could probably create custom recipients for each of these users-- I would suggest using a script to do so though.
