When I was in SBS2003 I was able to create an account under A.D. Users and Computers
in the Properties area in the Display name I used: .
this would hide the account so when a user used his "to:" button in Outlook the user would not see the email account but simply a "."
I need to do this again, create a hiden user or create an email account where no one can see the email account.

Any suggestions is appricated

The standard way is to hide the mailbox from the Global Address List.  This is on the General property page of the mailbox properties, a checkbox labeled "Hide from Exchange Address Lists."

The Global Address List is the list that comes up in Outlook when you click the "To:" button to look up an address.  This list is automatically generated by Exchange.  You don't edit it directly, but you can prevent a mailbox address from appearing on it as I described above.  To get to the checkbox for the particular mailbox, you would:

1.  Open the Exchange Management Console from the Programs list on the server.  Be patient, it may take a minute or so for the console to open completely and show the full Exchange organization.
2.  In the console, expand the Recipient Configuration container and then click on the Mailbox container.  On that list you will see the user/mailbox you created that you want to hide.
3.  Double-click on the mailbox name to bring up the Properties box.
4.  On the first tab (General) at the bottom, you'll see a checkbox labeled "Hide from Exchange Address Lists."  Check that box to hide the mailbox and the click OK to save your changes and close out.
5.  Close the Exchange Management Console.
