  • How to create "hidden" recipients.

    I use a number of email accounts as resources for collecting email data. My problem is that these accounts appear in the GAL. How can I hide them from the GAL but still be able to send emails to these accounts.

    I tried "Hide From Exchange Address Lists", but this then stops me from using the email addresses in the TO field of my emails.

    You can hide them from the address list, and keep them as contacts in your own personal contacts folder.

      I need the "hidden" recipient to be available in the GAL so that all other domain users can send to it, but not visible in the GAL.

        Are you listening to yourself?

        You need a contact to be hidden from the GAL,

        but

        you need it to be available on the GAL?

        Duh.

          Duh.
          That's right. For example, I have users called North, South, East & West which are used by one of our departments for scheduling by using the calendars of each of these users. BUT, I don't want the names to appear in the GAL, because other departments don't want to see them. Is this possible?

            Then you'll need to customize the GAL or create a new one to exclude these users. This involves creating a customized LDAP query.
