Hi,

Find all the users in a OU if the "Hide from Exchange address list" is ticked.

Is there a script that can do this.

Try this:

Click Start -> Run -> Cmd.exe

DSQuery * "OU Name Here" -Filter "(&(sAMAccountType=805306368)(MSExchHideFromAddressLists=*))" -Attr samAccountName

Example:

DSQuery * "OU=ACCOUNTS,DC=TRAINING,DC=COM" -Filter "(&(sAMAccountType=805306368)(MSExchHideFromAddressLists=*))" -Attr samAccountName
