    Default only one AddressGroup in the AddressBook possible ?

    Hello,

    in the past(other email-products) we are used to have different-
    AddressGroups in the "global-email-addressbook". Some users are
    stored even in different groups. Users do easily understand that
    concept.

    1.
    As I understand within Zimbra there is only 1 AddressBook possible.
    Is that the case?
    2.
    Are personal distribution lists Zimbra's approach to address that
    requirement?
    3.
    How are personal distribution-list visualized? In the AddressBook or
    only if a new mail is written?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    John

    There's a RFE open for a sorted GAL (groups, permissions, etc-search bugzilla)

    One GAL per domain (or you can set it to cross domain). This can be a combined GAL of zimbra + external LDAP/AD. You can make as many personal address books as you like.

    Contact groups:
    new > contact group > find the people you want> save it, and it can be treated like a contact.
    ie move it around you addressbook folders etc.

    Distribution lists:
    At the admin level get, these gropus get assigned an email address. OR You can not allow them to receive email and just use them for sharing cal/docs. OR Do both.
