Multiple Global Address Books in Exchange

Posted on 2007-08-08

We currently have 2 different companies sharing the same exchange server.  All reciepients show up on the global address book, unless I hide them.  I would like to have 2 global address books so the people only see their own global address book

    Accepted Solution

    Open Exchange System Manager, under Recipients, all Global Address Lists, right click and select New Global Address List, Give the Address list a name and then click on Filter Rules and then advanced click the Field button and find E-Mail Address, change the next field to Ends With and then type in uses.  Then click Okay, this will build an address book for only them, then do the same thing for the other company, users can set their default address book to the correct one in outlook (they can still see each others and the global one) this is very easy to do, hiding certain ones from certain groups is a lot more difficult- this sounds like it accomplishes what you are trying to do without to much work.
