Exchange Powershell Add Mailbox to GAL

Is there a cmdlet parameter in set-mailbox that will publish users to the GAL. I enabled a group of users from an OU but none are added to the GAL.

Any help is appreciated.

You may use attribute HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled while using Set-Mailbox cmdlet
Or set attribute msExchHideFromAddressLists in user's Adsiedit properties to False

so Set-Mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListEnable will publish it to the GAL? Could you please provide full syntax?

This will make sure it is not hidden in address book
Set-Mailbox -Identity -HiddenFromAddressListEnable $False

If you are looking in Outlook it can take up to 48 hours before new users are visible, because Outlook in cached mode uses the Offline Address book, which is only updated once a day by default.

Can you see the users in the GAL via OWA?
