Finding Entries in the GAL by Job Title

I work for a large company and use Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. I want to find other employees in the Global Address List (GAL) who have job titles that are similar to mine. How can I use the GAL to locate them?

From the main Outlook window, choose Tools, Address Book to display the Address Book dialog box. Make sure the Show Names From list shows Global Address List, then click the Find Items button. Type the title you want to look for in the Title box. Click OK to see the Address Book filtered with your results. Be prudent, though, in using this feature. If your organization has thousands of names in the GAL, such a search can put a significant load on the servers and might even time out before returning any results.
