Begin with a clear idea of what you want to achieve with a custom address list.

Research in the Exchange Management Shell with: get-Command *Address List Let me emphasise that these are simple Address Lists (There is no 'Global' word here).

Six verbs for Address List get, move, new, remove, set, and update.

Note 4: Real-life example from Brett Here is syntax that I used after I deleted the old GAL manually using ADSI Edit.

Import users from a spreadsheet, complete with their mailbox.

Research in the Exchange Management Shell with: get-Command *Global Address List Five verbs for Global Address List get, new, remove, set, and update.

For example: get-help new-Global Address List Note 1: As usual, Power Shell uses a singular noun: Global Address List Note 2: There is another family of cmdlets without the word 'Global', their noun is plain 'Address List'.

For example: get-help update-Address List Note 1: There is another family of cmdlets without the word 'Global', their noun is plain Address List.

Method 1: Power Shell and the Exchange Management SHELL The situation, you have created, and defined a new Address List using the Exchange Management SHELL. This is why people use Power Shell instead of the GUI!

Preliminary Step: Create a new Global Address List Launch the Exchange Management SHELL and use this Power Shell cmdlet Important: Firstly, you have to use Power Shell to create your new Global Address List (There is no equivelent command in the GUI).

Secondly, once created, you can only edit it with the set-Global Address List cmdlet. c) Revert to the old trick of rebooting the server, maybe it has just received a 'Patch' or update.

Just provide a list of the users with the fields in the top row, and save as file.
