Global Address List synchronization with third party database? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working on an Office 365 installation for a client.  They use Office 365 for their emailing purposes, but all their client's email address and contact information is stored in a separate database.  What they want is a one-way synch from the third-party database to the Office 365 Global Address List so that all the email addresses are available to internal users.  They do NOT want a synch from the GAL back to the third party database.  

    There is a the simple way of taking all contacts in the third party database and adding them all to GAL.  But that won't keep them in synch if a contact is modified or deleted in the third party database.

    Is there an existing tool or product that will do this?
