Hi Aki,
here's my settings for the GAL:
Gal catalog name: letts.mcws.usyd.edu.au (i.e. the fully qualified DNS 
name of the exchange server that has the GAL)
I also limit the number of responses to a small number (9 for me) as 
I've found a large number  i.e. >50 makes evolution VERY slow 
searching/syncing the GAL. It does mean some of my searches need to be 
refined to be useful :-)

Hope this helps

Kind Regards Russell
