I might have a problem with my Offline Address Book in Outlook.

Key: All Users or any other object type such as All Contacts, All Groups or All Rooms.

Full OAB download threshold To modify the threshold at which Outlook will download the full OAB rather than the incremental update, you can set the following Registry value Key: As the value, set at which relative size a full OAB download should take place rather than an incremental update.

When you find things working correctly for you now but not anymore after the oab-file were redownloaded, you know that the issue is with the oab-files on the server and not on the client or the Address Book configuration in general.

When you update an Offline Address Book on the Exchange server via the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell, one would suspect that updating the Outlook client after that would directly get you this fully up-to-date copy. After the OAB gets updated on Exchange, it still needs to distributed to the web services first, even in a single server environment.

In that case, you can completely reset it by deleting the files making up the OAB or by recreating your mail profile.

Apr 21, 2016. I might have a problem with my Offline Address Book in Outlook. For me, new colleagues are not showing up and the contact pictures aren't displaying either. They do for my colleague sitting next to me, so I don't think it is a server misconfiguration or something like that. Is there any way I can force a manual.
