msexchquerybasedn attribute as address list DN

I have segregated organizations and address lists on my exchange 2003 server. using the msexchquerybasedn attribute, I am able to restrict OWA and blackberry GAL searches to the AD container that a users account is loacted in.

I have a user that needs to have the ability to view adresses from multiple containers. I dont want to change their msexchquerybasedn attribute to the root container and after some research it appears that i may be able to use the DN of a custom address list to accomplish this.

I went ahead and configured a new address list that would cover all the containers that the user would need to query, but setting the msexchquerybasedn attribute to the DN does not yeild any results when viewing or searching from OWA or from the blackberry. Is there something i am missing when implementing this feature?

any help would be much appreciated.

thank you
