Devon,
Actually, this could have been done using the X500 Distinguished name property. 
However, Windows server 2000 has a known bug, which prevents this type of LDAP 
query from working correctly. 
 
You can do as Al suggested, by using a "seeded" attribute. Every user object in 
AD has 10 Custom attributes, which are available for you to use for whatever 
purpose you want to. So, you can use one of the custom attributes to identify 
these user objects in the OU. Just add a value to one of this attribute, say 
Custom extensionAttribute1, and use a value such as your OU name. You an access 
these extensionAttributes, by enabling the advanced view in the Active 
directory users and computers tool, and looking at the users "Exchange 
Advanced" property, and click on the Custom Attributes button. You have to edit 
all user objects in the OU to add the same value to the same extension 
attribute. Or you can do this with a VBscript. Once you have all users object 
added with the new attribute value, create a new address list view, and select 
Advanced filter rules. In the "Fields" option select "User", and select the 
"custom attribute 1", under "Condition" select "Is Exactly" and type the value 
you used. Do a "find now", This will create list of users with the new 
attribute.
 
 
 
Regards, 
Raj

IIRC, in Exchange 2000 you cannot create an address list based on OU 
membership.  You can populate each member of the OU with a "seed" attribute 
that identifies them as a member you'd like to include however. 
 
If there is another way, it's likely going to be found in the hosting documents 
that Microsoft used to publish.  Search the website to find out where they 
moved the docs to.

In Exchange 2000, how can I create an 'Address List' based on an Organizational 
Unit? Also, create one that includes multiple servers.
