I have checked the "hide from exchange address lists". Users still show up.  Is there a delay in the system before that happens? Is a reboot required?

these delayed action "features" always confuse me.  I have not seen a change in the gal (one day later). it there a way to trigger the update so I can finish this thing? (sorry, made another question here)
