I need to customize how the Global Address List appears on the Select Names page in Outlook 2003.  This is the page that displays when you click the To:... button in Outlook and have Show Names from the: Global Address List selected.  The list displays everyone in the GAL with collums for Name, Business Phone, Office, etc.  The last collum is E-mail Address.  However the values for this field for all of my users are not the simple internet address format "user@domain.com".  These values take the form "/o=myexchangeorganizaton/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=user".

What I want is to:
1.  Change the format of this e-mail address field from that non-user friendy format to the simple internet address format user@domain.com so my users can quicly see the real address without a bunch of unnecessary clicks.
2.  Change the order of the collums so that email address is the 2nd collum in the list right next to username

There must be a way to do this in Exchange system Mgr or with adsiedit.  I know that I can edit Exchange address templates in ESM as explained in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q152732/  but these modifications don't affect the view you get on the Select Names listing as far as I can tell.

thanks for any help.

1- there is a way....but will mess up ur exchange routin....so i wont post it
2- i have never bothered with this(or it has never bothered me) so i have not tried to figure out what formula MS uses  
     for display order....changing the order should be harmless if someone could come up with a solution.....
