Not just sending (I can do that) but restrict even being able to see particular addresses or group of addresses in the GAL.  I don;t want someone to be able to copy addresses and use an out side account to send emails to those accounts. So I need to block them from even seeing particular external contact or groups in the GAL.

what you are probably looking for than is setting up another GAL in sys manager
have you many users?you can than hide certain email addresses from the GAL

So I would creat a new GAL called "test".  Restrict access to that GAL.  How do I get contact or groups to show in that GAL and not the main GAL?

You have to replace the default GAL. So that would mean creating two GALs - a new "default" GAL (which isn't the default, but is the one that everyone gets) and another GAL that contains what you do want people to see.

The default GAL would have its permissions changed to restrict access.
