Sorting out the GAL

Sorting out the GAL

Post by Lee Gilkiso » Wed, 02 Jul 2003 15:14:41

In the GAL I had a sort order that started out with:


All Users got deleted and now starts at the normal A's at
the bottom of this list above.

Do you know how I move a group back to the top of the list?

Thank you,



1. Sorting the GAL

We have a need to sort certain persons at the top of the GAL as
displayed in Outlook when a person presses the To button.

In 5.5 we did this by simply adding spaces to the front of the name we
wanted at the top. This does not work in Exchange 2000 (possible
because we are hiding the Default GAL and only showing a subset) but
we can do it by using a character such as "(" before the name but this
looks odd to recipients of emails.

Is there a way to sort by some user-defined field or query that allows
us to sort in any order we want.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
