An address list is 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). Microsoft Exchange Server address lists also provide a mechanism to partition mail-enabled objects in Active Directory for the benefit of specific groups of users.

This topic lists the management tasks you can perform for address lists, including links to topics that will help you complete the task. Unless otherwise noted, these tasks can be performed by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell:
