How do I Hide Users in GAL on Exchange and Still Send and Receive Email on the Hidden Accounts?


I was wondering if it is possible to hide users from the GAL, and still be able to send and receive emails on the hidden accounts. One of my colleagues said he was able to hide the email addresses, but after doing so there were issues sending and receiving emails on those accounts.

If you hide a user account / distribution list from the GAL the full email address must be typed into the email for the exchange server to direct the email properly.

Hiding is just hiding from the address book.. It wont tamper any of the email functionality.

Good luck
No problem, just select the checkbox "hide from address book". Like above answer, full e-mail address must be used for receiving. Another way is masking the GAL with security groups, so users can't see it, and make your own address list with the users you want to see.
