first step of the process is to configure the replication of the attribute to the Global Catalog. The process is pretty straight forward and you can repeat these following steps:
  1. Logged on a Domain Controller
  2. Click on Start, Run and type in regsrv32 schmmgmt.dll and click OK, as shown in Figure 01


Figure 01

  1. A dialog box saying “DllRegisterServer in schmmgmt.dll succeeded” will show up. Just click on OK.

Now that we have the Active Directory Schema registered we need to open it to configure the replication of the attribute. You can repeat these following steps to enable the replication, as follows:

  1. Logged on the same session where you have just executed the previous steps
  2. Click on Start, Run and type mmc and click on OK
  3. Click on File menu item and then click on Add/Remove Snap-ins…
  4. Click on Active Directory Schema on the Available snap-ins section, and then click on Add > button, as shown in the Figure 02. Click OK.


Figure 02

  1. Expand Active Directory Schema [<Your-Server-Name>] item
  2. Click on Attributes
  3. Look for thumbnailPhoto attribute and double click on it
  4. Check the option Replicate this attribute to the Global Catalog and click on OK, as shown in Figure 03.

The above replies were meant for Exchange Server 2010, and not for Exchange Server 2007. As far as I know, you cannot do this in the Exchange Server 2007. Pictures from GAL (global address list) is only supported in Exchange server 2010 and upwards.  

However, you can do this in Exchange Server 2007 using third-partty utilities or powershell scripts. My IT friend referred me to Steve Goodman's blog where Steve mentions about a powershell script that he has written specific to Exchange Server 2007
http://www.stevieg.org/2011/01/setup-gal-photos-feature-exchange-2007/

And if you need any info on the "thumbnailphoto" attribute of a user object in the active directory, please refer the Microsoft Support article titled "How To Manipulate the ThumbNailPhoto Attribute of a User Object in the Active Directory". You can find the article @

Hope this helps.
