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

By default noone has the rights to do this unless they have rights to Active Directory. And even then, when you pull up the GAL and double-click a name, none of the fields are editible from there. These fields are generated from Active Directory and are view-only from the GAL.

==========================

Make sure there is no AD delegation to general user groups, and check the security settings on your user folders in AD.

Remove non-administrative users from groups which have elevated priviledges like the domain admins group and the administrator group.
