Global Address List: Outlook 2011 for Mac

The Global Address List (GAL) contains the names and email addresses of everyone who uses an Exchange email account at UVic. It also includes a listing of some conference rooms and global distribution lists.

  1. To access the Global Address List, click on Contacts.

  2. Type directly into the Find a Contact field or click on Contacts Search. Both of these options will open a new window. From the drop-down menus, select Search All Fields in Default Global Address List, then type a name into the search field. The list will automatically populate from the information you've entered.

  3. Once you've found the person or department you're looking for, you check the box beside the name or title, then select New E-mail to compose an email to that address or New Meeting to create a new meeting involving that person.
