we have outlook 2003 sp1 in the enterprise. the mail server is Exchange server 2003. we need to add an assistant for the director, so that when we check the properties for the director in outlook it should show the assistant. the assistant is a user  object in AD.
i want to know how to add this assistant.
where is this attribute comming from, i have checked the attributes in Ad and it does not show the assistant.

another option would be to modify the "seceratry" attribute via adsiedit.msc for the user. the "seceratry" attribute needs to be filled with the "Distinguished Name" attribute of the user that needs to be displayed as the "assistant" of this user
