An “Address List” is basically a group of recipients and other objects within the Active Directory Domain Services. One of the biggest advantages of the Address List is that it makes finding huge lists of resources and recipients from the exchange environment easier.
This means when you add new recipients to the organization, they automatically get added to the Address List.
The Address List may contain one or more kinds of objects, including:
- Public Folder
- Resource Groups
