Hide User from GAL - Office 365 | AD Attribute

The following method will allow you to hide a user from the Global Address List if you're using Office 365 with Azure AD Connect.

From within AD, click on View, then Advanced Features


Find the user you'd like to amend and open up their AD object (note you will need to find the user account within AD, you can't search for it).

Find the following attribute and set it to True

msExchHideFromAddressLists


The next time Azure AD Connect syncs, it will update this attribute and the users will be hidden from the GAL.

Note: the GAL can take up to 24 hours to sync for each Outlook application.

  1. Thank you very much for this incredible tip!!
    I suched very long for a method to hide a user from the Global Address List in Office 365. Until now I'm not very familiar with this software, because I never worked with it before. The only reason why I now work with Office 365 is, because I found it for a very good price at https://www.softwarechick.com/collections/microsoft-office-365.
    Thank you!!
