Exchange 2000 on server

When a user creates a new email they can click the To button, and view emails from the Global Address List.  I need to remove some email addresses from this list but cannot find where they are stored.

They aren't in recipients in exchange system manager.  Is the list automatically generated by looking at the mailboxes currently?

The list is generated from the information in Active Directory.  Use the "Active Directory Users and Computers" (ADUC) administrative tool to edit a user or group's information.  Then, Exchange will generate/update the Global Address List on the schedule defined by the Recipient Update Service in Exchange System Manager.  You can hide users and groups from the list, or you can create new mail distribution groups.
