When the Search Control permission is used to limit directory access, the global address list (GAL) can be displayed differently on a user-by-user basis. The GAL will be displayed to the user as the container that has the largest number of entries where that user is a member.


Exchange 5.5 introduces a new feature known as Search Control. This feature is implemented as a search permission on individual containers. By default, no search attributes are set. All users have access to all address containers. After the search attribute is set for one user, this container and all subcontainers will not be displayed to any other user unless they have been granted the search permission on the specific container. The search permission will flow down to all child containers. Please refer to the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator's Guide for more information.
