Office 2016 offline address book not updating

Rated 4.92/5 based on 570 customer reviews

It contains all the email address and contact information of an individual profile for Outlook.

Sometimes, users have faced an issue like “Outlook Offline Address Book not updating” because of resources available on the host server and service failed.

Note: Make sure users still update Outlook OAB files manually and wait for a bit to sync OAB for viewing the changes.

To update Outlook OAB files via Exchange Management Console, follow such steps those are mentioned below: First of all, Go to Organization Configuration, select Mailbox and click on Offline address Book tab and then, right-click on the selected OAB files (Offline address List) for which a user need to update and click on Update option.

In Outlook 2007 when you create a contact and add a phone number it will automatically format the number in for format of its choosing.

Unfortunately the formatting looks horrid and there is no way to change it or disable the feature.

As OAB (Offline Address Book) file extension is used by Microsoft Corporation in Outlook with Exchange Server, which comprises all the email address and contact information of an individual profile for Outlook.

However, while accessing this application due to services get failed and many users have faced this type of issue.

In the following section, we are going to discuss how to resolve such issues.

– In Outlook versions 2007,2010,20, users allow to type any specified display name, email address and password and Outlook users will try to configure their account automatically.

If this fails, users still select to configure it manually with the provided information by ISP or admin.

From what I can gather it does the formatting to ensure the country and state area code is included in the phone number, this information would be helpful if you use an integrated VOIP solution.

But for the average user this leaves the information looking visually confusing.
