Disabled Accounts showing up in Global Address List

We are on Exchange 2003 with clients using Outlook 2000/2003.  We have users that have been disabled months ago and are still showing up in the Global Address List.  I have checked Exchange Experts and other posts and it has nothing to do with cached information and the offline address book because I have checked with non-cached users.

What determines whether or not a user shows up in the global address list?  I hope I don’t have to go to each disabled user and check “hide from address book”.   We do have calendar resources where the calendar resource account is disabled but the mailbox is active by selecting “Associated External Account” on SELF.  The Calendar Resources work fine in that they are disabled but they still show up in the Global Address List but regular user NT accounts are disabled and still show up the GAL even though their “Associated External Account” is not select on SELF.
