Managing Recipient Settings

Using Custom Address Lists

Exchange 2000 enables you to create custom address lists to meet the needs of your organization. The address lists you create can be based on recipient categories (such as, mailbox-enabled users, mail-enabled users, contacts, or groups, or public folders) or field-level attributes that will be used as filters to search Active Directory.

Custom address lists will provide your users with relevant subsets of the recipients and resources within your organization.

You can create a new address list and set filter rules based on the subset of recipients you are selecting for address list membership, or you can modify an existing address list and modify its filter rules so that its membership includes only the recipients you select.

Once you set the filter rules for address list membership, custom address lists require minimal maintenance. As new Active Directory objects are created, deleted, or modified, changes are made automatically to address list membership.
