Global Address List

The Global Address List, sometimes referred to as the "GAL," is most commonly identified with Microsoft Exchange. The GAL is essentially a directory service within SmarterMail that contains a dynamic list of all contact information for every user on your domain. While individual mailboxes are contained within the GAL, domain administrators can futher manage what's included in the GAL in order to hide users that may not represent real people, such as a support@example.com alias and/or mailing lists.

Contact information for the Global Address List is pulled from the individual account profiles of users. To update your listing, click the settings icon. Then expand the My Settings folder and click Account Profile in the navigation pane.

Note: If the Global Address List is enabled for your domain, all information you enter into your profile can be seen by all other members of your domain.

The Global Address List functions almost identically as My Contacts.
