This can cause the “Updating Address Book” status appearing for a long time.

(This could take several minutes) Step 2: Uncheck the box next to Download changes since last Send/Receive.

(This could take several minutes) Outlook shows the "Updating Address Book" status for a long time. Outlook has a throttling feature that slows the address book update when you are working in Outlook.

In fact, Outlook cached mode will continue to download the offline address book every 24 hours regardless of whether the option is enabled.

Note: To locate this option, follow these steps: On the Tools menu, point to Send/Receive, point to Send/Receive Settings, and then click Define Send/Receive Groups. When you click to select the Download offline address book check box and then click Address Book Settings, the Offline Address Book dialog box appears.

When it didn’t or when you want to make sure you do have the latest OAB available, you could manually trigger an update from within Outlook as well.

If the update mechanism appears to be broken for you, it could be because of a corruption in your OAB or in your mail profile.

Seems like it takes a full day before the 2013 outlook users are up to date.

I have tried to manually download the offline global address list and this does not work either.

In that case, you can completely reset it by deleting the files making up the OAB or by recreating your mail profile.
