We are running Server 2003 and Exchange 2003


I have disabled a bunch of accounts in Windows 2003 Server, but they still show up on the Global Address list when someone opens the Global Address List using Outlook 2003.     Is there something else I need to do?   Is there a way to force the Global Address List to update?

Disabling accounts does not remove users from the GAL.  You have to hide them from the GAL under the Exchange Advanced tab.

mcnich,   I checked the box as you suggested, but they are still showing up in the GAL.    Does it take some time before they are updated?    Do  I need to reboot the workstation?

It can take up to 48 hours for a change to be seen by the clients.

Did you actually read the article I linked to? I explained on that page how to force the update.
