Full OAB download threshold To modify the threshold at which Outlook will download the full OAB rather than the incremental update, you can set the following Registry value Key: As the value, set at which relative size a full OAB download should take place rather than an incremental update.

Even though Outlook is the last in the chain, it is often the first level where the troubleshooting takes place as usually this is where the request is coming from.

This means that in the worst possible scenario, an update to the Address Book won’t become available to the user until 48 hours after the change.
This situation however is extremely rare since the default maintenance time on Exchange is at AM and updates and downloads are usually performed during working hours.
The change log in the notes field displays the changed data, should it try to update the contact with old information. The key is the same for all versions of Outlook that support the Social Connector. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Social Connector DWORD: Run Automatic GALSync Possible Values: 0 (Never Sync) 1 (Update without Prompt) 2 (Prompt to sync) Default setting is Update without Prompting.
