Marcel, take a look at this MS KB article:

XADM: A Description About the Support of the Localized Outlook Client in
Exchange 2000 Server;en-us;301314 

This may also apply to Exchange 2003, as it pertains to configuring language
support on the domain controller.

Yes, the local addressbook is empty.

I have only one DC in the domain so replication should not be an issue. I do
agree that the global addresslist is an old database (at least it seems that
way). Is it possible to regenerate this database with the current users?

No, only the office version is localized on some systems (not all users are
dutch therefor there are dutch and english verions in the network.
