Managing Recipient Settings

Set an Offline Address List Update Schedule

You can schedule when offline address lists are updated. If recipients are added, removed, or updated frequently, you can schedule updates as often as necessary to ensure that offline address lists are always current.

To schedule a time for updating offline address lists:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. In the console tree, double-click Recipients, and then click Offline Address Lists.
  3. In the details pane, double-click the offline address list for which you want to set an update schedule.
  4. To choose a preconfigured update interval, in the General tab, select one of the intervals provided from the Update interval drop-down list.
  5. Important   If you select Never run from the drop-down list, the offline address list will not be updated.

  6. To set a specific update schedule, click Customize. In the Schedule dialog box, set the update schedule on the day and time grid displayed, and then click OK.

Note   If you customize an update schedule, updates start at the beginning of the first grid block that you select. Set an update schedule that allows enough time for offline address list generation to complete before the next update begins. For example, if you specify three updates in a 24-hour period, and it takes four hours to update the offline address lists, there must be at least four hours between each update interval.
