How to publish digital certificates to the GAL

How to publish digital certificates to the GAL (Global Address List)

  1. In Outlook 2016, 2013, and 2010, from the File tab, click Options. Select Trust Center, click Trust Center Settings…, and then click E-mail Security.
  2. To put your public certificate in the Global Address List, click Publish to GAL….

Note:

You may not see the “Publish to GAL” button if you have multiple Exchange accounts added to your Outlook profile. If the button is missing, create another Outlook profile containing the single Exchange account for which you’re publishing the certificate, and then retry these instructions.

  1. You will see a dialog box that says “Microsoft Outlook is about to publish your default security certificates to the Global Address List”; click OK.

You will see a dialog box that confirms “Your certificates were published successfully”.

*It may take up to 24 hours for your certificates to propagate through the network and be usable to encrypt and sign.
