We have many Exchange/AD contacts set up and organized in organizational units.  I am looking for a way (besides setting up AD tools and Exchange console) for users to be able to easily add and subtract contacts from org units they have control of.  Does anyone know of way?

Since I was unable to find any better solution to this myself, I just setup a quick little Terminal Server that I had my managers log into for making such changes to users informations.

My collegaue has been working on another type solution for this that is lengthy and what I feel is insecure. A web based version of editing the information. Basically setting up an internal webpage. Seems kind of shoddy though and I personally would not recomend it.

If you don't want to use the native tools, you'll need to either build or buy a separate solution, either web-based or using a teeny .NET application.  Commercial tools for this are myriad and range in price from a few hundred dollars to "I'm sorry, you want -how much- for that?" Something like Jim McBee's DirectoryUpdate is $300 per domain (http://www.directory-update.com/), while the Quest or NetPro tools will be $xx dollars per licensed user.

Would a custom MMC console taskpad meet your needs, rather than installing the full toolset?: http://www.petri.co.il/create_taskpads_for_ad_operations.htm

Hope this helps.
