Exchange: Hide All Contacts From Global Address List

KB ID 0001564


I saw this on EE this evening, so I thought I’d work it out, what if your Global Address List is full of external ‘contacts’, and you want to remove/hide them?


First take a look at them, to see you’re not about to cause any damage!

Get-MailContact | Where-Object {$_.HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled -eq $false}

If you are happy, to remove/hide them from the GAL, simply do the following;

Get-MailContact | Set-MailContact -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

Like so;
