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.

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.

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.

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?
