Why do names still appear in the address list after disabling accounts in AD?

I have a list of user accounts that I need to take out of the address list for our Windows AD/Exchange environment. I want to keep the accounts around just in case. I thought that all I would have to do to have their names taken out of the address list for Exchange accounts would be to disable their accounts. Apparently, their names still show up in the list of addresses. How do I get the names not to show up in the address list without deleting the accounts?

Under the Exchange Advanced tab, tick the box to hide the account from the address list.

If you have an automated process that's disabling accounts we can probably add this function in as well.

You need to go the the exchange email adress tab (in user profile) and check the Hide from adress list.

Chris and aboredman are correct-you will need to manually set this as disabling the account does not equal a deletion, so the record remains in the address book
