    The GAL (Global Address List) is a list of all the mailaccounts in this system or domain. Basically the purpose is to have a list of all your users so you don't have to type in mailaddresses to known users, like the users in your mailsystem.
    I know this was a bit basic but if you can clarify your question a bit more I will be able to help you better.

    In Zimbra you have the option of creating your GAL from the internal OpenLDAP (default) or from another LDAP server or AD. Click "configure GAL" from the domain you have in the Admin UI.

    Best Regards
    Anders Rydell
