Exchange Global Address Lis

I have created 3 address book polices.  Added custom attribute to have each users belong to a specific GAL and only able to view their own GAL.  It had been working fine when I created the ABP after I have all the user accounts in the Exchange.  Now the problem comes when I create new user account and put the necessary information in the custom attribute.  This new user is able to see all GALs and he is in the correct GAL, but still be able to browse other GAL that he doesn't belong to.

For example, below are the 3 GALs I created each with ABP.  All users created before the ABP in place were able to see their own GAL and other GALs don't show up for them to view.  Not even able to see the default address book, which I wanted that way.

Contacts (external addresses for DL)

Am I missing something when creating new user account?  

Thank you advanced for your help, experts.

Do I have to do this every time I create a new user?

Can assign address book be done in the ECP page or have to be in PS?  I did what you suggest in PS and it worked.

I am using 2013.

I thought I did that when I first created the user.  By doing this in EAC, is it same as doing it in PS using command line?
