Hi
We are using exchange server, I want to do a grouping in our exchange default global address book as per the following :

Administration
Contracts
Sales
IT
Accounts
Engineering

Suppose if some one wants to send an email to Administration he can select Administration dept and all members of Administration dept will get that email

Also, if some one wants to send an email to only to one particular person in Administration dept, he can select him from Administration dept list.
How can I do this kind of grouping system in exchange 2003.
Please advise

you have two options

first option

you need to create distribution groups for the departments.
another way would be to create query based distribution groups http://www.petri.co.il/working_with_query_based_distribution_groups_in_exchange_2003.htm
this way a user can select the group name from the global address book and send an email to the group

second option

you can create custom address lists in exchange system manager
http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-1035_11-5555182.html
go into exchange system manager
expand recipients container
expand all address lists
over here you would see the default address lists
you can create new address lists and filter them based on any attribute
you can also use admodify.net to add attributes to users in bulk
