See the below step..... for more details open the below link.... you'll get the complete information with step by step...process
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:
Logged on a Domain Controller
Click on Start, Run and type in regsrv32 schmmgmt.dll and click OK, as shown in Figure 01
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:
Logged on the same session where you have just executed the previous steps
Click on Start, Run and type mmc and click on OK
Click on File menu item and then click on Add/Remove Snap-ins…
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.
Expand Active Directory Schema [<Your-Server-Name>] item
Click on Attributes
Look for thumbnailPhoto attribute and double click on it
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
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.
