Can you hide aliases from appearing in the GAL?
Is it possible to hide email aliases in the GAL? The only option I can find is to hide the main account.
One example of why this would be useful:
Our email addresses are created using first initial and last name (not the best policy, but it's ours).
User gets married, so last name changes.
User gets new email address with old address aliased to the account so they do not miss any mail during the name change.
It does not encourage everyone to use the new address when they continue to see the old address in the GAL.

In Zco this can be done as follows
If you do not want aliases to appear in the GAL, you can disable this option. Modify the ZmCustomizeMsi.js file before installation and select the
--galsync-disablealiases 1 option.
When this is disabled, users cannot search for aliases when addressing mail.
If profile aliases are being displayed by Outlook, and you have disabled this feature, the GAL must be reset.
For Outlook 2007, go to Sync Global Address List>Reset Global Address List.
For Outlook 2010, go to the Zimbra ribbon>Sync Global Address List>Reset Global Address List.
We do have some bugs though
