    Exchange Server Advice for Students

    Hi,

    Happy New Year to you all!

    I have Exchange 2003 and have been asked to setup email address for some of our students. Ideally i need to stop students being able to email staff, but possibly allow staff to email students (not essential).

    I would prefer if students could not see the contacts list for staff too!

    I need to know the best way to achieve this.

    I have heard some people creating a whole new mail store or would it be better to do this by creating a new GAL?

    Any suggestions?!

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    If your students are just using OWA you can restrict the address book to look at a OU within AD see,

    XCCC: How to Restrict OWA Address View Searches

    You can use a tool like ADModify to bulk change the value for all your users.

    As for restriction students from emailing staff i know this is possible in exchange 2007, but i cannot remember if it is possible in 2003

    In 2007 you can apply delievery restirictions on a per mailbox lvl, so you can say Reject messages from teh group "Students" which would just bounce all emails from students.

    Hope this part helps

    Mark

    We've used separate GALs to prevent students seeing the staff address book, but allow students to e-mail staff. We have however, set a limit of 5 to the number of recepients, after the first week of using Exchange saw students sending mail to all users in the address book.
