    Take a look at the Address book policies functionality: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/address-books/address-book-policies/create-an-address-book-policy

    Do note that ABPs do not prevent user communication, if a user knows the email address of another user, they can still contact them. If you need to restrict that as well, you will need to configure transport rules that block messages sent between different branches.

    I try to following artical and try to many method to create ABP. My step is

    1. create new GAL / AL / OAB / ROOM for each domain
    2. create new ABP for each domain
    3. Define CustomAttribute1 -eq = "each domain"

    But user each domain can search across domain.
