Composing a message

When you are composing a message, suggestions will appear both from the directory (GAL) and your own contacts as you type in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields. If you are not seeing these suggestions, try hitting the Enter key to search the directory and bring up the suggested addresses.

Searching the Global Address List

You can search the GAL (Directory) from the search bar within the People module. When you search within the People module you will be searching both your own contacts and the Directory by default. You can search just within the directory by selecting the Directory radio button in the navigation pane.
