Cleaning the cache of address book in Outlook for Mac 2011 (Global Address List on Microsoft Exchange)

Submitted by Jochus on Sun, 11/11/2012 - 22:43 | Posted in: Mac


When connecting from Outlook for Mac 2011 to a Microsoft Exchange server, Outlook caches the Global Address List for a day. Changes made on the Exchange server, are not directly visible in your Outlook.

If you want to force an update, you can follow the steps below:

# Close Outlook
~ $ cd Library/Caches/Outlook/Main\ Identity/1/
~/Library/Caches/Outlook/Main Identity/1 $ rm OABQueryInfo.plist 
# Startup Outlook - the latest version of the address book will be retrieved from the server
