Thank You. I checked the E2K FAQ and found the following: 5.11 Q: I've created more than one address list. Which list will users see for their GAL? A: The following criteria are used when determining what a client will see for the Global Address List. Which Address List do you have permissions to see? Which Address List contains your mailbox object as an entry? If your mailbox appears as an object in more than one address list: Which of the remaining Address Lists contains more entries?
I changed the value that determined which address view my mailbox will appear in and low and behold, I now see the contents of the other address view in the Global Address List. It appears to me that the Global Address List you get with the client is not meant to contain all the entries that you have the permissions to see, just the entries that appear in the same address book view that your mailbox is in. As long as this is consistent, it is good for me. Thanks again. -----Original Message----- From: Chris Scharff [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Thursday, December 27, 2001 7:55 AM To: Exchange Discussions Subject: RE: GAL and Address Book Views Check the E2K FAQ in the link below, most of the address list population rules there apply to 5.5 as well.
