I migrate several exchange 5.5 systems to exchange 2003.  users ask to have their old Global Address List, whixh includes addresses from the local exchange server as well as external addresses.  Exchange 2003 Global Address List seems to show addresses of those who have mailboxes on the local exchange server.  The rest of the contents of exchange 5.5 is normally migrated using PSt files export/import or using exmerge.  Any idea how to include external e-mail addresses in the global address list, so users can access them in outlook in the same way as in exch5.5?  Sorry for the lenghty question.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Thank you for the prompt response.  I just tried on a test virtual server and client environment and the GAL is populated with external e-mail addresses.  Whether clients will be able to send to them from the local system, I will have to check on Monday.  Thank you again!

Thank you for the solution.  I created test contacts in AD and these are now included in the GAL.  I have not tested this solution on live system, but I feel it will work.  Thanks!
