Hi D303M,

The question you asked has already been answerd on EE previously, Just have a look.





Does this include the delegation part:

To let users update attributes on their own accounts against the server that is running Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server or Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
Right-click the Domain container, and then click Delegate Control.
Click Add, click the special account Self, click OK, and then click Next.
Click to select the Create a custom task to delegate check box, and then click Next.
Click to select the Only the following objects in the folder check box, click User objects in the list, and then click Next.
Click to select the Property-specific check box, set each attribute that you want your users to modify, and then click Next.
Click Finish.

Users can now use Galmod32 or the Windows Search applet to update their information in Active Directory.
The permissions on your user account determine the global address list entries that you can modify. If you have Domain Users permissions, you can modify the following fields in your own global address book entry:
Business Phone Number
Home Phone Number
Mobile Phone Number
Zip Code
If you have Domain Administrator permissions, you can modify the following fields:
I don't think so it would work on the client end :), then too if you want to give a try just create a test user and try on it.

The person who tries new always learn something new, weather its a failure or success :)
