We want to enter relevant information into the active directory user accounts-for example telephone number under the general account tab and address information under the address tab-

If a user wants to search for or merely browse through that information how would they go about doing that?  Does it appear only under the global address list in Outlook or is there an LDAP search or look up procedure?

Thanks in advance.

Active Directory is based on LDAP, so any tool that can query LDAP can query AD - this can be a tool that you write yourself or purchase off the shelf. AD information will appear in the GAL if you're in an Exchange environment, or you can configure an app like Outlook or Outlook Express to do simple LDAP lookups of AD if you're not an Exchange shop.
