    Exchange 2003 GAL

    Probably addressed (guffaw) many times before.
    We have a global address list, which until last week, all the kids had access to.
    I've followed the RM tech article TEC969366 to add a Deny permission for the students group to be able to access the address lists, however when noobs log in (just testing the new year 7 accounts) or students after a profile reset, outlook now can't access the gal to connect to their mailboxes.
    harrumph. how can I get round this? We currently don't want kids to see any members of the list, or at least only their peers.

    All users have to be on a global address list
    All users are on the default GAL, but I've denied Students access to it.
    Yet it looks like they need this permission when first setting up their mailboxes.

    Any ideas? How do you lot out in edugeekland manage the GAL.

    We had this years ago, at my old place...

    If you create a New GAL for each students year or one for all students. They will then only be able to see people in the GAL they are a member either that be the year group or all students depending on your config.

    Or they could just use OWA, saying that i think they will be able to see every one in there.

    Yeah, I've created a new GAL just for the all students group, but outlook still won't connect the newby accounts mailboxes for them in Outlook 2003 on the network.
    How long does it normally take for outlook to update this stuff, I read that the offline address book only updates once a day? will this affect it?

    Grrr.. OWA still brings up staff if you search for mr or mrs...
