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

isn't secratry a part of the non rfc compliant attributes which were removed in exch 2k3.
i think i read it somewhere, could be wrong.
