Did you find an answer to this problem? I think it is related to a problem we’re having as well. We recently upgraded to Exchange 2007. Two of our users who use Outlook 2003 in cached mode (RPC over HTTP) cannot see certain names in the GAL. Everyone else can. I’m not sure what this is about or what to do.

I just verified through ADSI Editor that I am generating OAB Version 1, 2, 3a and 4 ( just set the binary value to 1, it was presently 0, which meant it was only doing 2, 3a and 4)
So I am and have been generating 2, 3a and 4 up until now and I set it to do all of them because it won’t hurt my cause.
I do have autodiscover configured properly though. Everything works perfectly when I pull people out of Cached Mode, but if all of my users did that, it would be a substantial load on my server (roughly 450 users)
2003 is patched current, 99% of my users run off of Terminal Servers and we update them on a weekly basis. But whether the users run on terminal servers or locally on their machine, the result is still the same and the OAB is out of date.

What version of server is hosting the OABs?
Are you generating a v3 and a v4 OAB?
Is Office 2003 patched to current?

With me being the only exception, everyone else is unable to see a current version of our global address book.
I made a new forward lookup zone in my DNS settings so that when Exchange searches for Autodiscover.<mydomain> it goes directly back to the mail server and that portion works. But I am still the only user that has an up-to-date GAL (Global Address List) everyone else is months behind. This should have fixed our office 2007 users as they don’t access or *shouldn’t* access the GAL the same as office 2003 users.
What am I missing here and why I am the only one that’s able to see this? Should I start dissecting my permissions?
Any suggestions would be appreciated as this is annoying me and I have people calling me and asking me if they’re getting canned soon because they can’t be seen in the GAL (stupid, I KNOW, but it’s still something I have to deal with)
