Just as Office Communicator has done since a later R2 hotfix, Lync also will not immediately download changes to the Address Book files when first launched, but instead wait for a random interval of time between 1 and 60 minutes.To trigger an immediate download two steps must be taken on the client workstation.Fortunately, there is a well respected work-around, create a new Global Address List, and then 'update' the mailbox. Solar Winds' Network Performance Monitor will help you discover what's happening on your network.This utility will also guide you through troubleshooting; the dashboard will indicate whether the root cause is a broken link, faulty equipment or resource overload.

Support for Outlook 2000 was dropped with Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010 only supports Outlook 2003 (post SP2). In the diagram below you can see this server is performing public folder AND web based distribution, this is probably because you ticked this box when you installed the product.

Remember with Exchange 2007 / 2010 you create the mailbox with the Exchange system Manager anyway! On the Exchange Server, Start Ensure “Hide From Exchange Address Lists” is NOT ticked.

In addition to this there a a few methods by which your Outlook clients get the offline address book. 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.

Exchange 2013 only supports Outlook 2007 (post SP3 and cumulative update), and Outlook 2010 must be at SP1 with cumulative update. For public folder distribution ensure the public folder database is mounted, and at least one server holds a replica.

Also in the properties of the mailbox database, your users are using, make sure it points to the correct public folder database.
