Create Address Book policy with Exchange 2013 and Exchange 2010 SP3

Below outlined steps will create an Address Book policy in Exchange 2013 to make sure Contoso’s address book is only visible to Contoso employees.

Prereq’s:

When a new user is created the user should be stamped with the right email address.

Process:

CMDLets 3 and 4 will find users daily with the right email id – say contoso.com and add CustomAttribute15 to contoso.com to all discovered user’s and assign the appropriate address book.

Simply use a notepad and replace contoso.com to yourdomain.com and CustomAttribute15 to the number you want.

This is the simplest possible form of achieving this task – for complex requirements please adopt other ways.

1. Create Address Lists, Room Lists, GAL, OAB and ABP

New-AddressList -Name “contoso.com_AL” -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq ‘UserMailbox’) -or (RecipientType -eq “MailUniversalDistributionGroup”) -or (RecipientType -eq “DynamicDistributionGroup”)) -and (CustomAttribute15 -eq “contoso.com”)}

New-AddressList -Name “contoso.com_Rooms” -RecipientFilter {(Alias -ne $null) -and (CustomAttribute15 -eq “contoso.com”)-and (RecipientDisplayType -eq ‘ConferenceRoomMailbox’) -or (RecipientDisplayType -eq ‘SyncedConferenceRoomMailbox’)}

New-GlobalAddressList -Name “contoso.com_GAL” -RecipientFilter {(CustomAttribute15 -eq “contoso.com”)}

New-OfflineAddressBook -Name “contoso.com_OAB” -AddressLists “contoso.com_GAL”

New-AddressBookPolicy -Name “contoso.com_ABP” -AddressLists “contoso.com_AL” -OfflineAddressBook “contoso.com_OAB” -GlobalAddressList “contoso.com_GAL” -RoomList “contoso.com_Rooms”

2. Find all users you want to assign the ABP and set CustomAttribute15 to contoso.com

Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited | where {$_.EmailAddresses -match “contoso.com”} | Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute15 “contoso.com”

3. Apply the ABP on all those users

Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited | where {$_.CustomAttribute15 -eq “contoso.com”} | Set-Mailbox -AddressBookPolicy “contoso.com_ABP”

4. Schedule script 2 and 3 to be run daily using task Scheduler
