Specify Address Lists in Outlook Web App

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can use ADSI Edit to control which address lists are available to users when they use Outlook Web App for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Web App virtual directories" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

  1. Open ADSI Edit.
  2. Locate the user for whom you want to set an address list value.
  3. Open the properties for that user, and then add the appropriate value for the querybaseDN parameter.
  4. Save the changes to that user's properties.

The querybaseDN parameter is found on Active Directory user objects. By setting the value of querybaseDN, you can control which address list a user has access to through Outlook Web App. You do this by assigning the distinguished name of an address list or organizational unit (OU) to the querybaseDN parameter.

The following conditions apply to the use of querybaseDN:

  • If the querybaseDN parameter isn't used, the user will have access to the first global address list (GAL) that's listed in the globalAddressList attribute for that user.
  • If the querybaseDN parameter is set to a specific address list, the user will have access only to that address list.
    • If the user uses Select Rooms in the Scheduling Assistant, they'll see only resources from the specified address list.
  • If the querybaseDN parameter is set to a specific OU and the displayAddressLists parameter is set to $false, the user won't have access to any address lists. If the querybaseDN parameter is set to a specific OU and the displayAddressLists parameter is set to $true, the user will have access only to users in the OU that is specified by the querybaseDN parameter.
    • If the user uses Select Rooms in the Scheduling Assistant, they'll see only resources from the specified OU.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Web App virtual directories" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

  1. Open ADSI Edit.
  2. Find the address list or OU that you want to use, right-click it, and then click Properties.
  3. Find the distinguished name of the address list or OU.

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

Enter Get-AddressList to return all the address lists under the All Address Lists container.

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Get-AddressList.
