No you can't do that when in cached mode, but you can update the GAL several times a day which may get you nearer to what you want. Also, make sure the Outlook clients download the new GAL of course. If your Outlook clients operate in online mode, the changes are immediate.

In the Exchange Management Console, go to Organizational Configuration. 2. Click on Mailbox. 3. On the Offline Address Book tab, click the Default Address Book. 4. In the actions pane, click properties. 5. On General tab, click Customize and select the timings as you need. 6. Click Ok.
