We recently cut over to using Google Apps for our mail/calendars/docs etc...

One thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to create a Global Address List for the company.

When in Google Apps Mail, the autocomplete in the to/cc/bcc field is aware of all the other [email protected] but in the Mail/Contacts section or the full Contacts Manager app, all I can see are contacts that I've alerady emailed.

Does Google Apps just not provide this "Shared Contact List" functionality ?

I think what you're looking for is the Contacts service.
It isn't available to all types of Apps setups, so you'll have to check on that.

You have to use one of the apps from the Google Apps Marketplace. Stand alone Google Apps does not provide a global contact sharing feature. I have tried Shared Contacts by floreysoft. It was a bit tricky to setup but has worked just as I wanted it to since.
