We are in the process of adding additional departmental address books to our exchange server with the end goal of controlling access to various contacts and user accounts. The goal is to then allow users to sync their Blackberries with the departmental address list they belong to. They in turn would not have access to other departmental lists nor to the Global Address list. With that my questions are:

1. Creation of additional address lists - recommended procedure?
2. Assignment of access rights to both the new lists as well as the GAL.
3. Ensuring that the new lists appear in the users Outlook (Outlook 2003).
4. Syncing Blackberries with the appropriate lists.

I don't think you would be able to hind them in the BBs. The guys over on blackberryforums.com might.

The GAL is based on an LDAP query as are the other address books.
You need to configure (you might be able to use the advanced settings for what you need) a new query for a new addressbook.

You then need to give rights to the groups and remove rights to those groups to the GAL.

When I did this in the past, we affected changes at each desktop.  I am sure there is a way to affect the change without doing this, but I don't know how.

Sorry for the delay in getting back - we had a complete theft of all IT infrastructure and have been busily getting that back.

One point I failed to mention is that we operate in a cached exchange mode and thus will be using the OAB. How can I propogate the appropriate filtered offline address books to our users? For example, MGMT would need access to the MGMT book etc. Also we would like it if the assigned OAB was the only one available and downloadable to the specified group.
