Global Address List (GAL) tidy rather than policy (ABP)

hello

I have been reading up on ABPs, http://c-nergy.be/blog/?p=2113 - but for my purposed this seems like over kill.

In an effort to tidy up the GAL, I have created a new Address List to filtering out some users   This has worked fine, however those users still show in the GAL.  Therefore I have checked the option 'Hide from Exchange Address Lists' to hide those users from the GAL but consequently this also hides the users from my new Address List.

Is it possible to hide users from the GAL whilst still showing them in any Address Lists? (without implementing ABPs).

As the property name says...the user is hidden from all address lists. You cannot remove a user from Default GAL. Any new mailbox created will be added to default GAL and cannot be removed/hidden from there.

Instead, you need to create 2 address lists for the 2 sets of users and modify the Default GAL recipient filter to not include any recipients.
