Possible to give permission to specific user to make changes to Global Address List entries on Exchange 2007?

I was wondering if it is possible to delegate out permissions for the Exchange 2007 Global Address List. My primary reasoning is because we have a large number of users to update personal information (street, phone number, etc...) on and this would take up much of the IT department's time. We would like to be able to delegate this permission to one of the receptionists if possible - does Exchange allow this or something similar so I can enlist the aid of a coworker to help update entries?

Add the user to the Exchange Recipient Administrator Role but before you do this be sure you know what other changes this user can make

ref- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996881.aspx

Exchange Recipient Administrators Role
The Exchange Recipient Administrators role has permissions to modify any Exchange property on an Active Directory user, contact, group, dynamic distribution list, or public folder object. During Exchange Setup /PrepareAD, the Exchange Recipient Administrator role is created in the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups container in Active Directory. This role also lets you manage Unified Messaging mailbox settings and Client Access mailbox settings. Members of the Exchange Organization Recipient Administrators role have the following permissions:

Read access to all the Domain User containers in Active Directory that have had Setup /PrepareDomain run in those domains.

Write access to all the Exchange specific attributes on the Domain User containers in Active Directory that have had Setup /PrepareDomain run in those domains.

Membership in the Exchange View-Only Administrator role.

Users who are members of the Exchange Recipient Administrators role will not have permissions to Domains where Setup /PrepareDomain has not been run. When you add a new Exchange domain, make sure that you run Setup /PrepareDomain in the new domain to grant permissions to the Exchange administrator roles in that domain.

Will I also have to remote desktop them to the Exchange server and log them into EMC? Or can they make these GAL modifications from Outlook? This will be a short term temporary thing and she will be watched to make sure she is not fooling around with anything else.
