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). Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 address lists also provide a mechanism to partition mail-enabled objects in Active Directory for the benefit of specific groups of users.

You can also use the Exchange Management Shell to create and manage address lists. For more information, see the following topics:

Use the Introduction page of the New Address List wizard to create a new address list, specify the container for the address list, and specify recipient types.

Name

Use this text box to create the display name for the new address list. The name can contain as many as 64 characters but cannot include wildcard characters.

Container

Click Browse to select the path to the container for the address list.

Include these recipient types

Select the types of recipients for the address list. You can select None, All recipient types, or The following specific types:

  • Users with Exchange mailboxes   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to users with Exchange 2007 mailboxes. Users with Exchange mailboxes are those that have a user domain account and a mailbox in the Exchange organization.

  • Users with external e-mail addresses   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to users with external e-mail addresses. Users with external e-mail accounts have user domain accounts in Active Directory, but use e-mail accounts that are external to the organization. This enables them to be included in the global address list (GAL) and added to distribution lists.

  • Resource mailboxes   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to Exchange resource mailboxes. Resource mailboxes allow you to administer company resources through a mailbox, such as a conference room or company vehicle.

  • Contacts with external e-mail addresses   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to contacts with external e-mail addresses. Contacts with external e-mail accounts do not have user domain accounts in Active Directory, but the external e-mail address is available in the GAL.

  • Mail-enabled groups   Select this check box if you want the address list to apply to security groups or distribution groups that have been mail-enabled. Mail-enabled groups are similar distribution groups. E-mail messages that are sent to a mail-enabled group account will be delivered to several recipients.
