Topic Last Modified: 2011-10-18

The global address list (GAL) is a directory that contains entries for every group, user, and contact within an organization's implementation of Microsoft Exchange. If your organization uses address book policies, you may want to create additional GALs. To learn more, see Understanding Address Book Policies.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Global address lists" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the Exchange Management Console to create a GAL.

This example creates a GAL named GAL_Contoso that includes recipients who are mailbox users and have their company listed as Contoso.

New-GlobalAddressList -Name "GAL_Contoso" -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -ConditionalCompany Contoso
noteNote:
If you are using precanned conditional filter properties, the IncludedRecipients parameter can't be blank.

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see New-GlobalAddressList.
