Outlook displays the global address list that meets the following criteria:
- The user has permissions to access this global address list.
- The user is a member of this global address list.
- This global address list is the largest of all of the other global address lists.
If you create more than one global address list, and if you want a user to use a specific global address list, make sure that the user is a member of the list, and make sure that the user has permissions to access only this list. You can create custom global address lists and add members to these global address lists.
