We need to eliminate the alias column from Outlook GAL screen in Outlook 2010 (Exchange 2007).  Upper management feels that it is a security risk.   Any recommendations on if this is possible or how to do it would be appreciated.

You cannot accomplish this with Exchange as this is by design. You can however create custom templates for Outlook which might fit your needs.

Thank you.

This provides a registry entry ADHiddenColumns which allows us to hide the alias column.  Works with Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2007.
