Hi,

I know that if you enable Anti-SPAM agents on Exchange 2007 you can configure the server so as to reject mailing to recipients not listed in the Global Address List. Let's say that I want one of the employees of the company not to be listed onto the Global Address List (due to privacy issues). Will that disable incoming mailing to them? can I add an exception for that issues?

If you run the following command in the Exchange Management Console, this will force all emails to be checked against the GAL and will reject any that are not listed:
Set-RecipientFilterConfig -RecipientValidationEnabled:$true
This is Anti-Spam independent and if you don't list a recipient - then mail won't arrive for them (a hidden recipient is different).

alanhardisty thanks for the response. You mean that if a recipient has checked the Box "Hide from Exchange Address lists" he will not get an e-mail in this case?

No - if they are hidden - they still exist so will continue to receive emails.  It is only if the address does not exist at all (hidden or otherwise), that the messages will get rejected.
