Custom GAL; how to display in Outlook Addy Book - 16.Jun.2005 7:22:00 AM

We have recently installed Exch2k3 to upgrade 2 existing old Exchange installations in different companies in anticipation of a merger. We did everything from scratch, the surviving company install as the parent domain xxx.com and the acquired company as a child domain child.xxx.com, single exchange setup with the server of xxx.com as master and child.xxx.com as member.

We would like to create separate address lists for each company. We created an custom address list xxx and defined the query parameters. Doing a preview on the custom address list yields the expected results. We created more of this to make user search more easier

Our problem: How do we make Outlook show the custom address lists created? Opening the address book in outlook seem to show only the default GAL's or Address Lists but not the custom address lists defined in Exchange System Manager. Is this scenario possible at all?

Thanks a lot.

Is this Custom GALs or custom Address lists?
If a custom GAL, then you need to check Security permissions for users to Read/List the Address lists.
To get the new GAL, ask users to logout, login to refresh new Address list access rights.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I am actually trying to decide on which one would serve the purpose. Is there a rule of thumb on when to use a custom GAL vs. a custom AL?

I made a custom AL last night and noticed that this morning that it was already visible in Outlook. I created a number of custom AL's per that queried per department, but noticed the changes didn't appear immediately. I forced a update, no change. A few minutes later, forced a rebuild, still no change. Logged the user out and re-logged in, still no change. It's been about 20 minutes and still no changes seen. Any ideas?

If we were to decide to use GAL, what other rights should be allowed other than what is default. You mentioned that the read/list access should be enabled. Inspecting the authenticated user default security for the new custom GAL resulted in enabled open address list and list contents. Am I missing anything here?

Thanks a lot.
