Hi

I've hidden a few people from the Global address list on exchange but this has resulted in me not being able to add them again within outlook, it comes up something like , could not match name to global address list. is this expected?

If you have hidden some users from the Global Address list then you would not be able to send mails to those users and it would not be able to resolve the name.

That is normal, you need to quickly unhide, add the mailbox, then rehide again. (Once added it stays)

This is correct, the e-mail will possibly get rejected as the Exchange system cannot resolve the name:

as Malmensa suggests, unhide, send the e-mail, then re-hide will work.

It doesnt appear to be rejecting the email, so I'll leave it as it is for the moment

You use Active directory User s And computers tool on the exchange server to both hide and unhide, its one of the xchange tabs on the account ,simply tick a box or untick as needed
