    Hi guys

    I have an Exchange / related question - I'm not sure this is the
    right place, but I can't find any Exchange newsgroups in my subscription, so
    thought I'd try here.

    We have an Intranet which currently has an SQL 2005 database as it's
    database, holding things like Contacts, etc.

    As a company, we've just moved to Exchange/Outlook for email, and want our
    contacts from the Intranet to appear in the Global Address List.

    Now, as far as I can tell there are 2 ways... store our Contacts data in
    Exchange, or get Exchange/Outlook to poll the Contacts data of our Intranet.

    Everything I've seen points to the former as the solution, so first of all
    is there any way of doing the latter that I haven't discovered?!

    My tests for creating Contacts in Exchange work, but we always end up with a
    local (to our domain) email address. Clearly we don't want this, as these
    people don't work for us.

    So how do I stop Exchange automatically creating an email address for them
    on our domain!?

    I realise this is slightly off-top, but I'm stuck! Any help, advice or
    resources for getting Exchange / working together would be greatly
