Does anyone use Multiple GAL's within their Exchange org?

We have a number of seperate Exchange Org's and instead of regularly having to go through exporting, checking and importing contacts into the default GAL I'd like to look at an other alternative.  My idea is to have the Default GAL for the exchange Org and then seperate GALs created in each for the other Orgs.  Which in turn can easily be cleared and re imported to ensure all leavers and new additions are covered.

Does any one have mutliple GALs which they could comment on and if the above would causes issues for the outlook clients when syncronising after updates or/and searching for contacts?

Hi

You can create additional GAL's and use security permissions to determine which users see which GAL in their Outlook client.

Hope this helps.
