Scott,
 
Thanks for the input.  I did run the user sync per domain and POs but it just doesn't update the telephone field and seems to only relate to using the dsimport utility.  If I make changes manually it updates just fine.  Strange

Run the edirectory user synchronization process
That should update GW with the changes made in eDirectory.

Hmmmmmm.  Well you may be right but it seems like if it populates in e-dir that all it needs to do is sync.  I guess I will have to see about using the GW import utility.  I user that for distribution lists but am not sure how to do it for populating e-dir fields.

IMO that does not support GW.
