Mike, You need to create multiple address list views, and assign
permissions to them so that only intended people can view each address
list. You should also restrict the permissions on the default address
book views so that all users cannot view them.

Subject: [exchangelist] isolating users in an ISP environment


I have an Exchange 2003 server on a Win2003 server.  It is in an "ASP"
environment with many different internet domain names, each one being a
totally separate company.  It is important that one company does not see
anything or is aware of anything about another company.  I have followed
all the ASP guidelines afaik.

Most everything seems to be working, but when, as an Outlook 2003
client, if I do the following, I can see all the other groups, users and
contacts. Any ideas on what I might have missed in isolating each

Click on "Calendar"
  Click on "Open a Shared Calendar" (it is a link under "My Calendars")
    A popup will appear.  Click in the "Name..." button
      A "Select Name" popup will appear.

In this popup, there is a pull-down menu for "Show Names from the...".
If I choose any of the pull-down items like "All Contacts", "All users",
"All Groups", then sure enough I can see all the other companies, their
users etc.!

How do I isolate these from one another so users in one company
("Group") cannot see anyone except their own groups, members and

best regards
