  • Hide from GAL (Was: Hide Exchange Server function)

    Hi I'm back again with one more confusion.. Setup: AD 2008 R2 sync with Exchange 2010 Beta.

    1st, I want to know, what does "Hide Exchange Server" option under Exchange Advanced does?

    2nd, If I check mark that option in AD for account xyz1. and then, I give mailbox rights of xyz1 to xyz2... Will xyz2 be able to add xyz1 Mailbox in his Outlook??

    Thanks in advanced

    Beta is a little on the obsolete side -- we are well past SP1 now

    Can you clarify where this option is, post a screen shot if possible

        Sorry for responding late... Yes Hide from Exchange Address list.. It comes under AD> Exchange Advanced> (Then there is a box to check mark for Hide from Exchange Address list) ---------- And yes it hides the mailbox from Global Address list.

          Exactly what it says -- hides the mailbox from the GAL, so it cannot be searched for

          Nothing to do with permissions, but to see a "hidden" mailbox, you will need to know the name rather than browsing for it

          Moving this thread to Exchange 2010 forum.
