You Hide the contact from the GAL by doing the following...
- Open ADUC
- Click Exchagne Advance Tab
- Put a check mark in the Hide from Exchange Address list

What you could do is create a public folder contact list say "Hidden users" and move move them to the public folder contact list before hiding them. Once they are moved you can hide them from the contact list.

Just so you know once the email address is hidden from the GAL you will not be able to send email to this account.

Thank you. However, while I'm familiar with hiding the users, my question was how can I hide them from the GAL but show them in a separate Address list within the Address Book? For example, I have segregated users by departments within the Address Book. I do not want these users to show in the GAL, just in a separate area within the Address Book.

Not sure if what you are asking for is possible. When you "hide" an exchange account from the GAL you cannot access this account nor can you send mail to it.

You can add contacts from the GAL to another address book by doing the following...
- Open Outlook
- Click Tools, Address Book
- Click Tools Options (in address book window)
- Under "Keep personal addresses in select contacts
- Click OK
- Viewing the GAL, select the users/groups you want to move to your contacts and right click "add to contacts"
- This will copy the "contacts" from the GAL and put them into your contacts folder
- From here you will be able to hide the user from the GAL
