I'm using Exchange 2000 on a Mixed Mode Domain/AD

I have a Distribution List that points to an internal Users mailbox AND to external Contact. These three items' Exchange Alias all start with the same letters.

ie:
DL: xxx
Mailbox: xxx-mb
Contact: xxx-extern

How do I hide the mailbox and Contact alias' from the Address List? So when writing 'xxx' in Outlook it only finds the DL.

On exchange 5.5 you could hide the mailbox and contact but then the DL couldn't forward to them either.

That is an advanced option and it appears about 2/3 of the way down this page - http://www.ku.edu/exchange/dlists/dlistsoverview.shtml

I can't find these options on my Exchange 2000. I think it only work on Exchange 5.5

I'm using the 'Active Directory Users and Computers' Console on the Exchange Server

And what I need is not to hide the Distribution List, but to Hide the members from the Global Address List.

in the users and computers MMC, click view\advanced features.

Then go to the properties of the user or mailbox you want to hide, and go Exchage advanced tab. Check teh box that says "Hide from exchange address lists".
