Default BESAdmin and GAL

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

simple question, but found no answer yet: Does the BESAdmin account need to be visible in the Exchange GAL? What happens if I hide it?

Thanks and best,

It does not need to be visible, and I'm 99% sure I read somewhere that it should be hidden. Could be wrong about that part, but ours is hidden and we have no problems.
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!

The only time you need it to be visible is when you're modifying the MAPI profile the BES uses as it needs to see the BESAdmin account in the GAL to successfully create / update it.
