In Microsoft Outlook for Mac OS X, how do I access the ADS Global Address List?

If you are using Microsoft Outlook to access your Exchange account, you have access to the Global Address List (GAL). For configuration details, see At IU, in Mac OS X, how do I configure Outlook to access my Exchange account?

To search the GAL, choose one of the following options:

  • After clicking People (Outlook 2016) or Contacts (Outlook 2011), enter your search term in the "Find a Contact" search field. Alternatively, click Address Book (Outlook 2016) or Contacts Search (Outlook 2011) to bring up a separate search window.
  • While composing a message, initiate a search by typing in the "To:" or "Cc:" field.
  • At the end of the "To:" field, click the address book icon to bring up the search window.

To improve results when searching the GAL, enter the last name followed by a comma, and then the first name. You can also search using an email username.
