In our environment there was a lady who updated all her contacts (for her and all corporate) with phone numbers, mailing address, names etc... for both internal and external contacts. We are running exchange 2007 and I want to import the internal contacts info to our GAL but not the external contacts. The internal contacts are already apart of the system just with no information in there names And was thinking about adding the external contacts to a public folder list. Is there a way I can grant access for a user to update the rest of the 1000+ users information fields without giving them access to the AD? Can you help me out?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you certain all users in the corporation want this information published? I wouldn’t!!!! Have you talked to HR to find out if this is an acceptable thing to do for everyone? CYA!!! Most definitely before you begin make the proper consultations with upper management and HR.

    If you have the info in in excel/csv/text creating a VBS that updates the AD should be a really easy task and you don't need to open access to external persons.

    It is only for corporate users, so HR is already involved in it. They also want to be able to see all contacts (external/internal) on their BB's
