Exchange Global Address Lists

I am working at a company with 15 branches. We have setup Exchange 2003 with Global Address Lists for each Branch deleted the Default Global Address List. Using a filter on each GAL, users at each branch default to their respective GAL and see only that address list in Outlook. This is working the way we want.

We also want users at the Corporate Office to be able to See ALL the GALs. What is the best approach to do this?

What we ultimately want is for All Branches to only see their respective Address List and for Corporate to See ALL Global Address Lists.

You just need another GAL that has a larger filter - basically the same as what you have now. As all the entires are visible in the GAL, you just need to change the filter and the permissions.

Sembee,
Thank you. I have thought of that solution as well. I created a GAL and set a filter for Company Name, but It Lumps all User Names in one Gal. The Upper Management wants to be able to choose address lists by Branch name, but does NOT want the Branch users to even see the GALs. Quite Frankly I do not think there is even a way to do this.

You cannot split the display of the GAL up like that. The GAL is the GAL - it shows you all the addresses that are accessible.
