Dear dreik,
I am not sure is there are any third party tools availble to do this. Only thing i knew was when you hide any User it changes this attribute "hideDLMembership=TRUE,"  Then When RUS runs this id gets excluded (Hidden) in GAL. If some one who knows scripting may write and check for this attribute to pull the list.

You may also check the article "How Exchange Hides Group Membership in Active Directory" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253827/

Cheers!

This can easily be done with Active Directory Users & Computers:

1. Bring up Active Directory Users & Computers.
2. Right-click your domain name at the top, and choose Find.
3. In the Find combo box at the top, select Custom Search.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. Paste in the following LDAP query and then click Find Now.

(&(objectclass=user)(msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))

The list of hidden mailboxes will then be displayed. Don't forget that this will include System Mailboxes. Be sure to leave those alone!
