Step 3: The new version of the GAL will now be downloaded.
A status window will open to indicate that the download is in progress and will close automatically when the download is complete.
In that case, it is recommended to recreate your mail profile.
All the email applications retain an Address Book to preserve a record of all the contacts.
Rather than waiting 24 hours for Outlook to update the Offline Address Book on its own, you can force an update via the Send/Receive menu button.
You can disable the option “Download changes since last Send/Receive” to make sure you get a complete fresh copy of the OAB but this could take longer to download.
If the update mechanism appears to be broken for you, it could be because of a corruption in your OAB or in your mail profile.
