You would need to setup another GAL (custom ldap query) and restrict rights
on the Default GAL for the people who you don't want to see these objects.

Another option would be to put the contacts in a Public Folder and setup
that folder to be in the Personal Address Book on the clients that need it.

Hope that helps,

File List Folder Outlook 2003

Load the address from the lookup table to corresponding contact fi
Is it possible to create a custom mapping / loading between the contact and account entities in such a way that when selected the existing account value from the lookup table of account on the contact page, the existing address fields will be populated into corresponding contact fields?

Permanently keep holidays from showing up in Calendar2007

Copy a contact to Clipboard?
I use Outlook 2002 that came with my iPAC rx3115. I use it for contacts and calendar and not for email. Outlook 2002 allows me to highlight a contact and go to Edit menu and click copy and the entire contents of that contact are put into Clipboard. I can then paste the contact information into MS Notepad, an email, etc. and edit it from there. I like and need the quickness of this feature. This is a very important feature for me I use often. I want to upgrade to Outlook 2007. Did Outlook 2007 retain this feature? In Outlook 2007 can I quickly copy the entire contents of a...

How do I hide gaps in an Excel 2007 chart?
I have a bar chart that is showing gaps and i don't want them. The select data > hidden and empty cell button does not give an option to hide gaps.

GAL issue
Our existing Exchange 5.5 organization consists of two different sites, each in its own NT 4.0 domain, so call that siteA and siteB in domainA and domainB for simplicity. They share a common GAL between them as you would expect and all is well. I've just installed the first Exchange 2003 server in a Windows Server 2003 AD domain (call this domainC) and placed the Exchange server into siteA. Trusts are in place between domainA and domainB (previously), between domainA and domainC (for the migration), but not yet between domainB and domainC. The problem that I see now is that GAL for use...

REPOST: Contacts/Global Address List/Automated Dialling
We can currently initiate telephone calls from within our contacts folders, plus some public (contact) folders, by right-clicking and selecting Call Contact. This feature could use our mobile phones (via Bluetooth) but more usually it uses our BCM office phone system. This all works fine. However, under this system we are maintaining a lot of duplicate data: 1 x Active Directory, 1 x Exchange 5.5 directory, and several public contact folders. We are moving to Exchange 2003 soon which will mean that Exchange will directly tap into AD, rather than maintain it's own directory. We would als...
