Access a mailbox thats hidden from the GAL through Outlook MAPI
Posted on 2003-12-11
I need to open a mailbox in Outlook that is hidden from the address list is there any way to do this? At the moment when the mailbox is hidden from the address list outlook just says cannot resolve name and won't go any further. is there any way of not hiding the mailbox but putting it in a confidential address list in the GAL so that general users cannot see it in the regular GAL.
I need to do this because we have just set up mail Archiving to the mailbox i need to be hidden because we don't want users to know that we archive all there mail just yet and having a user in the GAL called mail Archive would be a bit of a clue (one employee may be emailing all our cases to a competitor and we need to catch them!)
Any help would be very much appreciated
