Hiding the global address list from outlook users?

Currently we are using exchange 5.5 for everything except send/receiving email messages. The problem is that users sometimes send emails to other users addresses from the Global Address book (which is user@internalIP) and obviously the email is lost.. any ideas on how I can only let outlook users see their Contacts list and not use the global address book? or hide it?

thanks in advance.

This is the only way i know how...you have to setup search control permissions, basically denying them the view...

Look at these two for more details...

search exchangeadmin.com for "ott restrict ABV" to find the relavent article. This will prevent users from being able to check others free/busy information (which is an everythign in Exchange not directly related to e-mail).

The problem I am having is that in the Contacts view there are 3 parents containers. the GAL, Our Company and the Outlook View. The first two are filled with the wrong addresses and I need to hide them. It seems that everywhere I read, I am creating more groups and more lists, thus making it even more confusing for my users. I need to somehow hide the GAL AND the company list from everyone. The 'ott restrict ABV' search helped alot but I am still missing something I think.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok so I figured out how to hide the lists I needed, but for some reason it doesnt work in Office XP. Any ideas?

Hey Chris,

I am having a similar problem, but in reading through your questions/comments, you tend to figure things out on your own, so the solution never gets printed.  Any way you could post how you were able to get the exchange server to force the external e-mail servers, and not send through itself ?

thanks,

Mike
