I need to create an additional GAL because we have branch office that users frequently email but I do not want it to show up in main GAL with all our main office users.

Branch office users have different domain that is not apart of our Exchange organization.

I tried to create an Address List under All Address Lists but it also shows up in Default GAL.

I believe you have to create a new 'Organization' and then place the data in that organization to be able to create a new GAL.  There is only one GAL per organization.  (at least that is my understanding.. not 100% )

Do you mean organizational group?

I currently have all users in the Branch office created as contacts in a separate OU from the Main office users.

The Address List would work but I do not want the Branch office users to show up in the Default GAL.

Is your branch office a different domain?

katredrum:  Not an OU.. an Exchange Organization.

HOWEVER, after some research, it turns out you can do it without a new Organization.
