I don't know how to do that but before you consider it - the GAL  is
also represented by the offline address book for outlook 2003 and 2007
cached mode users while the All users is an address list that is only
available online.  So if you set the default to "All users" whenever a
users is disconnected or remote- if they want to visually search the
address book- they will always get an error 1st then they will have to
choose the GAL or the local contacts folder anyway- so it may cause more
pain than solving search issues. Of course if they just type in the name
and press CTRL + K it will search all address books.


Let me know if you find a way to do it with a GPO.

Subject: [gptalk] Setting Outlook default address list via GPO


Does anyone set their organization's default Outlook address book view
via GPO?  For example, when you open Outlook and you click on the
Address Book icon or menu option (Ctrl + Shift + B) I think the default
is the GAL, but we'd like to set it to "All Users".  Anyone know the
quick and dirty on how to do this?  Is this a simple Outlook ADM file?
(I know I can look but I figured someone has done this so I thought I'd
ask before doing a lot of searching)
