Contact administration for Windows Messenger 5.1 and LCS 2005

We currently have Live Communications Server 2005 setup on our network and use SIP on Windows Messenger 5.1 as our IM tool. We are on a 2003 domain, with Exchange 2003.

What I'd like to do is have the ability to add, remove, edit, etc... the contacts that each user has. For exsample: when some one quits, can I go and take their name off the list, it it gets removed from everyones list, without having to visit each user's list? Or I can put a new user in a group that tells MSG to point to a default contact list?

Is this possible without using any additional software? I've spent countless hours googling and searching Microsoft for an answer to no avail.

There is no easy way of doing it. The contact information is stored in the registry. You would have to find someway of importing the new information or replacing what is there. If your users are allowed to communicate with external contacts then anything automated probably wouldn't be possible.

It is only internal.

I thought that the registry would be the only way to do it, if at all. I just haven't found anything that say yes you can or no you can't.

Flyguybob is a former LCS MVP, so you might want to drop him a note to get him to take a quick look at the question.
