How to Sync Global Address List(GAL) Contacts to Blackberry/Outlook contacts

Tip of the day: I will show to how to copy contacts from Global Address List(GAL) to Contacts in Outlook and Contacts in BlackBerry.

The procedure is very simple.

  • Open Outlook
  • Open GAL(either you can press Ctrl+B or select the GAL from outlook ribbon)
  • Now look for the contacts in GAL that you want to add to Contacts folder in Outlook
  • Select them(Outlook GAL allows multi selection, so select as many no. of contacts you want by holding control key) and right click on it
  • Select “Add to contacts”
  • You are done. Now the selected GAL contacts will be visible in local contacts. These will get synced to your blackberry so you can view them from blackberry as well.

The advantage with this is, if you have mail delivery set to PST and working from a place where you don’t have connectivity to Exchange server, then still you can see the contact details of the required people without establishing connection to Exchange.

Hope this little tip helps.
