    Does the stock email client on Windows Phone 8 support gal lookup? I cannot seem to find it if it does.

    Yes. When you begin addressing an email and start typing a recipient, a drop-down box appears and one of the options is "search <name of exchange account> directory". So if you have, for instance, someone in your GAL named "Fleeburflurbur Poptarthead" you would start typing F-L-E-E and then hit "search <name of exchange account> directory"; it would then either resolve the name or present you a list of matching recipients.

    How about Gmail? I've set up gmail with activesync and when I try to do search on gmail directory from my 920 I get no results. Like if I search for "sun" I get 5 address pop up in web based gmail.

    Gmail doesn't have a GAL, however, if you store your contacts in Google and have them synced to your phone, it should bring up matching contacts when you start to type an address or name in the mail app.

    Ya I don't want all my gmail contacts in my phone. My N8 and N9 has Global Address Lookups on gmail with MFE and I just fired up my N9 now to double check and it's working.

    I can't seem to get this working and I don't know why. I don't get an option to search my Exchange account. It's frustrating it works fine in iOS. The phone synced my exchange contacts fine but I get no option to search the GAL.

    Well it looks like deleting the account and adding it back fixed the issue for me. I believe it was working before so I am not sure what might have broke it. I do wish the search auto populated like it does in IOS having to manually search each name is a pain.

    Wait you're able to search gmail contacts on the gmail server... not simply the contacts that sync'd to the phone? I deleted my account today and reset it all up but still can't search contacts.

    Do you mind putting exact steps you did when you recreated your account?

    ok the issue is simple, I need to sync contacts with gmail in order to use gmail GAL. I was afraid every single contact recorded in gmail would transfer over but only the one in your contacts do (I guess that would've made sense from the beginning)

    sorry if I dragged this topic too far off.

    S'ok, I didn't know Google had a GAL. I thought it was just contacts. So... you learned me something. :)

    I can successfully search my company GAL but I am wondering about additional Address Books coming from my Exchange server... our organization has a few other address books on Exchange (e.g. Suppliers) and I am wondering how I could have those searched as well, when I search for a contact. They're linked in my Outlook (they now appear under "Contacts > Other Contacts") but that doesn't seem to expand the scope of what's being searched on my WP8... any ideas?

    Hi all,
    even though this post might be considered outdated...
    I see my company's directory to search for recipients. However, the search never returns a result.
    I think we are using Exchange Server 2003.
    Any ideas?

    In Android with touchdown this worked like a charm.
    Thanks!
