For IMAP, POP3, and other types of email accounts, it is usually an Outlook Address Book.
You can change the default Address Book and set other address book preferences, such as which address book to check first when sending a message, and where to store personal addresses.
This feature requires you to use a Microsoft Exchange Server 2000, Exchange Server 2003, or Exchange Server 2007 account.
Most home and personal accounts do not use Microsoft Exchange. The Offline Address Book contains the properties of a user, such as e-mail addresses, that Microsoft Outlook requires in order to send an e-mail message and display information about the user.

I refuse to reboot my Exchange server to update the GAL as that is a horrible solution and the 24 hour thing is not happening either. Have you tried "update-globaladdresslist "Default Global Address List" (or whatever your GAL identity is" on your Mailbox server?There are many suprised, like the missing public folders... Some of the entries in my GAL were removed close to a year ago. Is it something on Exchange Server 2007 that I need to correct? So, if I understand you correctly the server needs to be rebooted in order for the GAL to update on a system running Office 2007?The users/dist lists I have created or removed have had more than 24 hours to propagate so I am sure it is not that.We have another server in the wings waiting to be deployed, but we need to address the problem in the meantime. If it does not, then it is the generation or distribution process that is failing. OWA reflects the information correctly, but Outlook does not. I have tried deleting the OAB files, but when I download the address book, it still has the outdated version.I'm wondering if anyone has anyone has any tips that could help me address this issue. Are you using web or public folder distribution for the OAB? If you are on Outlook 2010, any reason you are still using public folder distribution?I was able to find out that not running in cached mode fixes the issue immediately but I would like to find a solution that allows me to use cached mode if I so desire? But yes you can switch from cached mode and it'll take care of it too. The Show In Address Book User is not found on our DC.For some reason Exch 2007 only pushes the GAL updates after 24 hours...2003 Exch was not like that. On another note, I found that even taking off the cached mode still didn't work for one of my systems with Office 2007? It worked like a damn on my system but did nothing on another, pretty much identical system.
