Exchange 2010 SP2 and Address book policies

Exchange 2010 SP2 comes with a solution for something that has plagued Exchange administrators for years – the ability to quickly and easily segregate the Global Address List (GAL) and present a tailored view to respective users. Although, there have been different solutions to accomplish GAL segmentation but never been suggested by Microsoft. However, in release of Exchange 2010 SP2 it has been made a cornerstone feature which termed as Address Book Policies (ABP) which enables Exchange administrators to quickly and easily separate address lists for each organization.
