  • Adding Global address lists

    Hello,

    In Exchange 2003, under Recipients\All Global Address Lists, I added an address list called "United States" on the same level as "Default Global Address List" . When I preview it, the corect info is shown.

    Unfortunatly, I cannot get the address book to show up in Outlook 2003/2007 and cannot find any info on how to do this. If it is possible, my next step would be to find a way to make the default address book in Outlook to be different for each country, depending on the location of the user.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Multiple address books on Exchange 2003 is very complex and no longer supported by Microsoft. It usually makes a mess.

    You basically replace the GAL for every user, blocking access to the default one. It is not something that I would recommend.

      Re: Adding Global address lists

      hello,
      I've got my additional address lists under Recipients\All Address Lists\
      rather thna Recipients\all GLobal Address Lists\

      within outlook, I then go tools > address book
      then there's an option in bold titled "Address Book" that has a drop down list below it, and I can choose which list I would like.

      I understand you can only have one default global address list ?

        Only one default GAL is allowed. You cannot have two "default" objects. One of them has to be the default.

          I've been able to play with the permissions and give/remove rights to allow different users access to different GALs but when I download the address book using Outlook, it only downloads the main GAL. I've tried manipulating the Offline address book permissions in ADSIEdit but this has not worked.

          I agree that this is probably not a good idea but my dark overlords wish it so.

            Address list segregation is no longer supported on Exchange 2003.

            If higher management want it setup then tell them to pay for the migration to Exchange 2007 where it is supported.

            On Exchange 2003 it has a very high failure rate.
