  • Windows Mobile and Global Address book in Exchange 07

    Hi,Guys!

    Let me first describe our environment:
    Exchange 2007 SP1 std on Win 2008 SP1 std, Office 2007 pro SP2 and Windows mobile 6.1 Pro mainly on Samsung Omnia i900.
    My issue is that I managed to config all Omnia's to synch emails, calendar, tasks and contacts with Exchange 07 through activesync and through 3G or external WiFi, but I want to get Global Address book synched as well. Spent some time looking for solution to no result. The only thing I found is links, references to Microsoft software called Global Contact Access Powertoy but all links to Microsoft are dead.
    Just wonder if someone came across same issue and found solution.
    Thanks in advance,
    Stan

    You don't sync the GAL.
    There is no solution from Microsoft to sync the GAL.
    If you want to query the GAL then you can do so over the air live. The reason is that the GAL could contain 1000s of users and therefore the device wouldn't have the memory to store them all.

      Thanks, Simon!

      Would it be a pain to ask you for help explaining how do I configure WM6.1 for
      over the air query for GAL?

      Thanks, Stan

        There is nothing to configure. There is a lookup option in the application.
