    Default Outlook Autocomplete

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if there was anyway to get the Outlook autocomplete function to work with my company's global address list. I have no problems viewing the list when I want to search for an address, but only my personal contacts will show up when I start typing in a name.

    Our mail server is using Zimbra 5.0, and the client is Outlook 2003.

    I am using version 5.0.2428.0 of the outlook connector.

    Edit:
    Of course I found a solution right after I posted.

    In outlook: Tools -> address book
    in address book window: Tools -> options

    You can change the order searched there

    My users have the correct order with GAL first, however it never auto completes unless they click the 'To...' icon. Kind of defeats the point. Any other suggestions?

    Default Same trouble here...

    ...on a fresh upgrade to NE 5.0.18 and Outlook 2007. One thing is different though, the GAL is listed second underneath "Contacts."

    That's just the way Outlook is. Autocomplete is based on a local cache. Contacts & GAL are never consulted as you type. To consult the GAL for a name/address you have not previously typed, you need to hit "check names" (Control-K).

    Seriously. There are tools to edit the local cache, but there is no networked autocomplete in Outlook, even in a 100% Microsoft server environment.
