Is it possible to rename the names of the address lists in Outlook by a setting in Exchange? F.ex. rename "All Users" to "All <Company> Users"?

I'm pretty sure you can change the name of the Distribution List.

Open Active directory users + computers on the exchange server, look for the 'All' distribution list and go to properties > exchange general > display name

We have tested that, and tt seems like this is not getting updated in the Outlook Client.

Do you mean renaming All Users under the Global Address List? If so try this.

On exchange server expand Recipients>All Address Lists; right click on All Users and choose RENAME.
