  • Adding users from a OU to a custom Address list

    Hi,

    How can I add users from an OU to a custom address list ?
    I have a OU in AD full of contacts and I want that all those contacts are contained in a custom address list.

    Thanks in advance !

    Exchange doesn't recognise OUs in any shape or form.
    You cannot use them for filtering or anything. Therefore you will have to use a custom value to create a filter for an address list.

      I know, but I thought there is some kind of LDAP search I can use to filter users from an OU.

        Exchange uses an LDAP query, and the OU cannot be used as a filter. You will have to filter on something else.

          Added a custom attribute to all contacts and created the address list by filtering after that attribute.
