      "Note that, although the criteria of default address lists cannot be modified, they can be renamed or deleted."

      And yes, when you delete a user it should automatically be removed from the GAL.

        Jeremy,

        Thanks for that link, contains some usefull information, however, i'm still a little un sure of where I need to look to be 'hiding' users from the gal?

        Also, you say when you 'delete' a user they should be removed from the gal automatically, does that include disabling accounts and deleting the mailbox?

        Thanks

          Sorry, reading too quick and I missed that detail.

          If a mailbox is deleted it should be automatically remove from the GAL.

          To hide a user from the GAL, open ADU&C and go to the properties of the user you want to hide, select the Exchange Advanced tab and check the "Hide from Exchange address list"

            The GAL is automatically generated from the active directory. Any mail enabled object which has not be hidden will be visible in the GAL.

            If you hide an object, then it will be hidden immediately from anything that uses the live GAL. This includes OWA and any clients connecting live.

            If you are using Outlook 2003 in cached mode, or any version of Outlook with offline folders, then the object will not disappear. These use the offline address book which is only regenerated once a day by default. Outlook 2003 in cached mode only downloads the OAB once every 24 hours if running constantly, or when the application is started.

            While you can change the time between regeneration of the OAB, you cannot change the behaviour of Outlook.

            Simon.

                Go into AD Users and Computers, View and remove the tick next to Advanced Features. Exchange tabs should now be visible in User's Properties.
