Hello Damon,

Here is a part of a KB article about it (sorry I do not know the KB ID), I
had the same problem last year and it took me a while to find it. Remeber
that you need to do this on all DC/GC:s that the asian clients can connect
Configuring Windows 2000 Domain Controller and Global Catalog to Support
International Clients
For Exchange Server to support multilingual Outlook clients two things
need to be done. First, the Windows 2000 server where the global catalog
is installed must have language support installed. To install language
support, in the Regional Options control panel, click the General tab, and
then under Language settings for your system, select the languages that
you want to support.

To support multilingual Outlook clients, you must also add a registry key
to support international sorting in Active Directory for MAPI clients. By
default, Active Directory will only support English sort orders. A sort
order can be added by adding the locale ID values to a registry key on the
Windows 2000 server where the global catalog is installed.

To set the registry key on the server: 
On the Start menu, click Run.

In Open, type regedit. 

Locate the following key: 

Right-click Language, point to New, and then click String Value.

Type a name for the string, and then press ENTER.

Right-click the string value you just created, and then click Modify.

In Value data, type the value of the locale ID that you want to support.
