The Address Lists tab in the work pane lists the default address lists that exist in your Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization. Address lists are a collection of recipient and other Active Directory directory service objects. Each address list can contain one or more types of objects (for example, users, contacts, groups, public folders, conferencing, and other resources). Exchange 2007 address lists also provide a mechanism to partition mail-enabled objects in Active Directory for the benefit of specific groups of users.

To modify how organization configuration objects are displayed in Microsoft Management Console (MMC), click View in the action pane. For more information about view options, see Organization Configuration (RTM).

When you select an address list, the following actions are available either by right-clicking the address list name or by using the action pane.


Click Apply to start the Apply Address List wizard. The wizard enables you to reapply the selected address list immediately or at a scheduled time.

Remove icon

Click Remove icon   to delete the selected address list.


Click Edit to start the Edit Address List wizard. The wizard enables you to change the settings for an existing address list.

The previous actions are unavailable for the default global address list.
