Exchange 2010 Global Address List

I have an Everyone distribution list that has users the current addresses.  I also have users that are hidden from the global address list.  When an email is sent to the Everyone distribution list, it sends emails to the current users as well as the hidden users.  How can I avoid the emails being sent to the hidden emails?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Was this distribution group created before you hid the addressese from the GAL? What are you referencing to create your "Everyone" distribution group? If you are using some sort of custom attribute to collect all of the users and the hidden exchange accounts have this attribute they will also be added to the Distribution List.

Hidden exchange mailboxes can still receive email if you type the address in manually.

No, the GAL was created before hiding the addresses.  There are other distribution lists that "Everyone" references as well as GAL addresses.  Should I unhide the addresses and remove them from everything that this distribution list references?  I thought hiding them might remove them in that process.

They weren't typed manually, she used the "Everyone" distribution list only and sent it out.

Remove them from the list. They are still apart of it. Hiding only stops users from seeing their names.
