Hey guys,
How can i remove a disabled user from the global address list in exchange 2010. I have disabled the user in AD and disabled the user mailbox in exchange mgmt console. I remember in older versions of exchange there was a check box in AD. I cant for the life of me find it now.

You can find the hiding option on Exchange Management Console, select the disabled user, properties General tab, at the end you have the option Hide From Exchange address list.

get-mailbox "Disabled_User" | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddress
ListsEnabled $true

 Or this will do this operation for all disabled mailboxes:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited |Where{($_.UserAccountControl -like “AccountDisabled*”)} | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

Open up the exchange management console

Recipient Configuration > Mailbox > Properties > General Tab > Check Hide from Exchange address lists

You will probably have to enable the mailbox 1st in order to hide it from the GAL.  You can then do a manual push of the GAL or it should update everyone's GAL by tomorrow.  Default GAL update push I believe is 4:00 am
