Hide Global Address List from Outlook 2007 (Exch 2007)
I want to hide the global address list in the address book dropdown from our Outlook users. I will be creating address lists specific for our users, and thus we cant have them see everybody in the GAL. Anybody know how to do this? I prefer to do it using Exchange 2007 itself, but if devleopment is required, so be it.

The solution I found was waiting for the Microsoft Exchange HMC 4.0 product.

I too have tried this and it worked well under Exchange 2003 but for some reason I cannot get this to work under Exchange 2007. Anyone have a working tried solution? HMC4.0 is not an option, what I need to know is what HMC4.0 does under the covers to achieve this GAL hiding. Thanks Andy
