GAL list doesn't update when a new account is added.


This is because the default polling interval for the galsync account is 1 day. This can be reduced to 12h:

zmprov mds <internal datasource name> zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 12h


zmprov mds InternalGAL zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 12h

If there's a need for an immediate update, simply forcesync:

zmgsautil forceSync -a -n InternalGAL
