Updating the global address list in exchange 2016
Outlook Address List not showing newly created users or contacts 2.
Users not receiving latest contacts in cached mode UPDATE GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST USING EXCHANGE MANAGEMENT SHELL (EMS) NEXT OPEN EXCHANGE MANAGEMENT CONSOLE (EMC) BY DOING THE FOLLOWING: 1. Locate your Default Offline Address book and Right Click on it then select Update.
Exchange 2013/2016Exchange 2013/2016 will only be distributing the OAB via web-distribution. For all versions of Outlook (since 2003) you have two choices, either take Outlook out of cached mode* (so it queries the ‘live’ global address list).
Or force Outlook to download the latest version of the offline address book.*Note: Disabling cached mode is not really a fix!

Also when using the “Test EMail Auto Configuration..” (by holding CTRL and right click on Outlook System Tray icon) to examine the Auto Discover information, there was no OAB URL (OABUrl in XML) being sent to the clients.
I spent 3 hours trying to find out why this was happening (I assumed it was configuration and/or IIS authentication related).
Something during the setup must have messed something up and now i can't download the address book from outlook .After doing a migration from Microsoft Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016 I noticed that my Offline Address Book (OAB) wasn’t being made available to Outlook clients.When trying to perform a manual download (Send and Receive - Download Address Book), it wasn’t in the list.All my virtual directories and URLs were fine, and the OAB was being generated fine without any issues. I couldn’t find any references of this occurring to other users.I finally discovered that the “Web Distribution Enabled” configuration flag was marked to False, when it needs to be marked as True.
Outlook 2003 (and older)* clients get their OAB from a public folder, Outlook 2007 (and newer) clients can get their OAB from ‘Web-based distribution’ (basically form the website on the Exchange (or Exchange CAS) server.
