If you hide the contact/user from the GAL, then it is hidden for everyone unless you start making extensive changes to the address book setup.

For 25 points, that is about as much information as I am prepared to give you.
May I suggest that you read the relevant part of the help page: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi50

You still haven't explained what you are trying to do.
I took a guess in my response above, but that is about all it was - a guess. I am not a mind reader, I do not know what you are trying to achieve.

If you hide the user from the GAL - thats it. They are hidden.

You would have to create two new address lists, one with the contact visible and one without and then block access to the default GAL. Access to the address lists would be controlled by permissions.

It isn't something that I would even consider doing for a single contact as it is a lot of work and can easily go wrong.

If you did decide to do something like that, then I would strongly advise setting up a lab first so that you can play around with the permissions before making changes to the production environment. Changing permissions in Exchange is not something that should be done lightly and can easily cause you and all of your users to loose functionality.

Microsoft recently pulled the best article on this process.

Read all of it, and don't make any changes unless you are really sure.

I wouldn't even consider doing this for a single user. It is a major change to the functionality of Exchange and will increase the management overhead and complexity of the environment.
