Hiding Your Global Address List

By chris@iBeast ·
Our parent company wants to merge all business unit email systems. Our server will be reconfigured to be a site in their email domain. I do not want the entire corporation to have access to our Exchange Server's entire Global Address List. What is the best way to accomplish this while allowing our business unit employees to access the whole GAL. I am looking for a solution at the Exchange Server, unless there is a way to create a single client-side address book to be shared among users...

Hiding Your Global Address List

What you'll need to do is organize the recipients into appropriate Recipient Containers, grant appropriate permissions on those containers and then create a custom view. It won't look right because you'll still see the words "Global Address List", but when they choose it, they will only see the recipients they are authorized to view based on the recipient container permissions.

Microsoft has an article on setting up the Custom View on TechNet under article #Q182902.

I think this will accomplish what you would like to accomplish.
