Historically, there have been two ways to have photos appear in Outlook: each end user can manually add them on the client side or a server administrator can upload them on the server side.
If users are working in cached mode, then there is an additional step to modify the Offline Address Book (OAB) to include the photo, because otherwise it only includes a pointer to the photo.
This appears at the bottom of an email message (see figure 1 below).
Figure 1 – Outlook Social Connector (OSC) If you click on the OSC you can their picture and a summarized view of recent conversations you have had with that person.
Something wrong with Schema update or did you mess up the infrastructure.
This morning I was asked to update the Global Address List and Offline Address Book in an Exchange environment.
Web-based distribution point can be easily created and configured using Exchange management console or Exchange management shell.
It’s a more effective way of downloading OAB than from public folder.
This is done by simply opening a contact and clicking on the photo icon, then browsing for a photo to upload.
The preferred method is for a server administrator to upload photos into Active Directory, and the Global Address List can then synchronize those changes.
There is now a third method that compliments the other two.
Outlook 2010 has a feature called the Outlook Social Connector (OSC) that can show photos in Outlook from Linked IN, Facebook, etc..
So how does offline address book distribution works?
