When it didn’t or when you want to make sure you do have the latest OAB available, you could manually trigger an update from within Outlook as well.

After they are saved, the changes appear in the Address Book.

When changes occur within the main Global Address Book (GAL) on the Office 365, computers running Outlook 20/2016 may not automatically receive the updates.

In order for some GAL entries to show up properly you may need to turn off Cached Exchange Mode.

Please visit the document on How to turn on or off Cached Exchange Mode for (Outlook 2010, and Outlook 20).
