We have a lot of "contacts" and "mailusers" in our Active Directory environment. To be clear, we are _not_ talking about AD users who have mailboxes - but rather AD objects _apart from_ users that have 'proxyaddresses' and 'aliases'.
What I want to do, is remove the 'contacts' and 'mailusers' from the main Global Address List, yet let them remain in the "All Contacts" address list.
I have followed this article:
and this article:
But no luck - the 'contacts' and 'mailusers' still show up in the GAL. I have viewed from OWA and the list is the same as the OAB in Outlook: they both show the contacts and mailusers.
What is the trick to accomplish the removal of 'contacts' and 'mailusers' from _only_ the GAL - and still let them be listed in the "All Contacts" address list?
