Outlook 2016 gal not updating in cached mode

Rated 3.84/5 based on 600 customer reviews

However, on a regular Outlook client, a change might not appear for up to 24 hours.This difference is because the default configuration for an Outlook client is to use something called Cached Exchange Mode.

OAB is stored on Exchange servers (see my previous article and downloaded to client once Outlook is configured in Cached mode.In my lab I dont use any special GPO so yhe setting is done via registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\XX.0\Outlook New mailbox should be immediately visible for client without need to download OAB since information should be available online.Change in OAB is not visible immediately, because we have OAB files on the client computer and Outlook use those! OAB is not updated anymore even you download files successfully from Exchange.Connect to your Exchange Server using RDP or any remote application 2. And select Exchange Management Console from the list NOW WE WILL START THE UPDATE PROCESS, PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING: 1. You can also click on the Update link located in the Action pane on the far right after highlighting the Default Global Address List. You will receive the following message, just select Yes 5. Now follow the steps in "FORCE OUTLOOK TO UPDATE THE OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK" to download the address book again Finally please rate this article or leave a comment if this was helpful??Now we will need to verify that the update actually took place (Keep in mind that you would have to give the update about 10 minutes to ensure that it has completed) 6.
