Hi All,
I have a single user that needs to manage the Global Address List.  We're using Exchange 2003 w/ Outlook 2003.  The GAL is a mess and one of the users has been assigned the task of managing this.  How can I get the user access to this?  I've tried giving this user access the 'all address lists' in exchange, but it's not working.  I've had some success by finding the group that needs editing, supplying the 'manage' ability to the user, however there are so many groups it would take longer for me to assign all the manage ability than it would to just edit the list myself.  Anyone have any idea!?

Thanks in advance.

cleaning up the GAL would mean having to give the user access to Active Directory if managing individual entries.

What do you want to manage in the GAL?
Something like rDirectory from Namescape may be an application to look at. Otherwise you are looking at permissions within both Windows and Exchange - depending on what you want them to change/update.

if ti's just user/distribution groups, then go into active directory.  go to the group properties & then select the Managed By tab.  Select the user you want to manage the group & then check the box that says the manager can update list.
