I assume you're naming them with the 'hidden' lead-in for ease of
management.  If you just don't want them to appear in the GAL, I'd
probably just move them all to a separate OU, rename them as you wanted,
and leave them there.  Any new ones get created there and hidden from
the GAL.  You could still use them for DistiGroup membership that way
and it would be much easier to manage.

Subject: [ExchangeList] How do you handle external contacts


Hello All,


We're looking at a policy/procedure change right now and I'm curious how
others manage external contacts.  Until recently all of our external
contacts where in place so they could be part of a distribution list.
They would be named "Hidden-last, first" and obviously be hidden from
the address list.  That's recently been shoke up in administration and
we need a new way to handle them.  Basically if that external user
replies to an email they are not seen as user@xxxxxxxxx, but seen as
Hidden-last, first, doesn't go over so well.  We're struggling with how
to name them and wether or not to hide them.  We manage approx. 200 -
250 external contacts.
