Now that I have accomplished that, the last step is to actually log on as different users from the different groups to verify that I have accomplished my goal of restricting access to the contents of a specific Address List. I first log on as a user from the TampaEXAdmins Group, and when I open up Outlook and select to see the available address lists, this is what I see;
Now, I log on as a member of the BostonEXAdmins group, and you should notice the difference in their view;
As you can see, they can see the actual HiddenContainer Address List, but not the Confidential Address List that it contains. And as they don’t have list contents permission, they can’t see the membership of the Confidential Address list either. Hopefully this helps to clarify the question of how to hide an Address List from your users. I hope that you find this information useful. I also want to apologize for my long delay in getting out an article. I would love to say that I am going to get back to writing an article every other week, but I don’t want to commit to anything just yet. But be on the lookout for another exchange 2000 article in the not too distant future!! Thanks for your support, and until next time, cya!
