A co-worker said that at the company he worked at previously, users could edit user friendly fields (phone number, address, etc) in their AD profile through Outlook.
You can view the profile by going to Tools > Address Book. Find your name, double click on it, and change the appropriate field, then click OK.
Alternatively, you can open up a message sent to you, double click your name in the To: field and make the same changes.
I do not know how to give the appropriate permissions to allow users to do this. In all cases I have seen, all the fields are grayed out and can not be changed.
I have set up GalMod32 and I am not looking for that as a solution. The powers-that-be have been told it can be done this other way, and that is what we want to do.
