In this video we show how to create an Address List in Exchange 2013. We show this process by using the Exchange Admin Center.

Video Steps

1. Log into Exchange Admin Center.

First we need to log into the Exchange Admin Center.

2. Navigate to the Organization >> Address Lists tab.

3. Click the + "New" button.

To create a new Address List we need to click on the + "New" button.

4. Specify a name, address list path and the recipient types to include.

Specify a display name for the Address List. Also, specify where in the hierarchy this Address List will belong. Do this by clicking on the "Browse" button. Then pick where in hierarchy the list will be placed. Otherwise the list will be placed in the root. Specify which types of recipients this address list will contain by using the "All recipients types" or "Only the following recipient types" check-boxes.

5. Configure any rules.

You can define the contents of an Address List by creating a rule. Do this by clicking the "Add a rule" button. From the drop down specify the rule you wish to create. In our video we picked the "Department" rule and specify a value of "Time Travel Research". This checks all objects in AD to see if they have their department field set to this value. If they do they will be included in this list. You can use the Preview link to get an idea of what objects will be included based on your criteria.

Click the "Save" button to create the address list.

Hey sujauddin,

In Office 365 Address Lists can only be created in PowerShell. Check Tony Redmond's blog for more info.
