Does anyone know how to either create a new "customized" GAL, or modify the existing GAL? I need to be able to hide specific users & groups from the Global Address List. I found a website on it at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;300121 (How to Programmatically Create a GAL in Exchange 2000 Server) BUT, It's very hard for me to translate into an easy to read format. Has anyone done this? I created a new Address list in the "Global Address List." Folder in Exchange manager, but it doesn't show up in Outlook. I'm Stumped. I can have it as a different address list, but the users who need to be hid would still showup in the GAL. HELP Please!!! Doug Stelley Asst. Network Admin.
