in exchange 2k/2k3 anyone know a proven way to create an outlook profile when you are hiding an account from the GAL? if the account is hidden the traditional way of adding a user does not work because it the name cannot be looked up in the address book. i make allot of test accounts and hide them in the GAL but always have to hide/unhide when creating an Outlook profile for them.  i'm looking for a workout that works.  

please do not explain how to setup a user in outlook, explain how to setup a user in outlook that is hidden form the GAL.

Hi
I don't think that you're going to find a workaround for this, as outlook queries the address book specifically in order to resolve the users name when setting up an outlook profile. If the name is hidden from the address book, then as far as outlook is concerned it doesn't exist. It needs to be in the address book until the profile is created, then you can hide it.

Sorry xxgenius - There isn't a workaround for this other than to hide the user after the outlook profile has been created - If there was, believe me a solution would have been posted if there had been one,
