Each address list is a collection of one or more types of mail-enabled recipients (for example, users, contacts, groups, public folders, conferencing, and other resources).When changes occur within the main Global Address Book (GAL) on the Exchange server, computers running Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013 may not automatically receive the updates.If this is happening, then you may notice missing, non-existent and/or incorrect entries.If you are not seeing correct contact information in the GAL for someone that has a valid email address (i.e.someone who just received a CUMC email account, a new student, someone who recently changed their directory information) please use the steps below to synchronize your computer's locally cached version of the GAL.

Instances of mail that is bounced back to the sender may also be fixed.
