Don't want custom recips in Global A.L.

By jeff3453 ·
Hi,
On my Exchange 5.5 server I have a recipient container A, that is my company. I imported our parent companies list into a new container B, which are all custom recipients. I thought they would appear as a subcategory in the Outlook address book, but they are all in my global address book. I want container B to be separate, and not listed in the global list. I can't hide them, because I need our users o be able to search this list. Any ideas?

How about putting them in a public folder, rather than the GAL? You'll need to import to a mailbox folder, but then you can move the addresses into a public folder set up to hold contact tiems.

Remember the GAL is a collection of all your Exchange Organizations Recipients Containers, hence you see container A and B in the GAL. You can switch the default Address Book location in the Client to your Recipient Container A, but of course if someone chooses the GAL you see both groups.

You can try using Address Book Views if your custom recipients are distinct enough from your other recipients.

Read up on it first - then try it in the lab if you have one before implementing on the production Exchange environment.

See "Understanding Address Book Views" in the Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Books Online and/or Microsoft Article Q182902
