Microsoft Exchange is an application that allows large organisations to host and manage their own e-mail and customer data. To edit the master list of contacts, called the Global Address List, a shell program must be used. The Exchange shell allows system administrators to send commands to the main Exchange server.

Open the "Start" menu and select "Programs." From the list, select "Microsoft Exchange Server." Click "Exchange Management Shell" from the sub-menu. The shell program will open, allowing commands to be entered.
Enter this Exchange shell command to modify a Global Address List entry:
Set-AddressList -Identity <MultiValuedProperty> -ConditionalCompany <MultiValuedProperty> -ConditionalStateorProvince <MultiValuedProperty>
Replace the values between the <> brackets with the desired data. For instance, enter
Set-AddressList -Identity "ExampleCompany Florida List" -ConditionalCompany ExampleCompany -ConditionalStateorProvince Florida
to add all recipients in the Exchange database who work for ExampleCompany and live in Florida to the Global Address List. A full list of the available shell commands is available on the Microsoft Exchange website.
Finalise the changes and update the Global Address List by entering the shell update command, again replacing the data in <> brackets with actual information:
Update-AddressList -Identity <AddressListIdParameter>
For example, the command
Update-AddressList -Identity "ExampleCompany Florida List"
will update the address list called ExampleCompany Florida List.
