I am trying to configure Galmod for our exchange 2003 server. I have the application loaded on the back end and have also read the tech net artile regarding galmod. The article deals with exch 5.5 and the directions are a bit confusing. I am reqesting help on the basic setup of the mod.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Actually, I used Glen Scales 'galmod' solution and linked it to our intranet. Just modded it a little so that it pulls up details for the currently logged in user (Glen's solution is to allow a secretary or other central admin make mods on anyone in their department).

This worked out much more nicely as there are less security issues to deal with than the standard galmod.

I read that and thanks for the reply. I want to first learn how to use the client.
which article are you using? see the following and scroll to the instructions for 2000/2003:

as you can see, it states that you need to have domain admin perms to update assistant, title and department perms, which is why i went with Glen's solution as these were items my folks needed to be able to change.

I ditched Galmod ages ago.
I use rDirectory now.

Their free version works very well.

i no longer use galmod either, too much issues with it. I use dirwiz, but the one simon posted looks a little more slick.
