Active Directory Contact Info Sync with SharePoint

Posted on 2011-04-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-27

We are looking to update all of our users' contact info in Active Directory.  Currently, we have someone keeping everything up-to-date in Outlook Public Folders.  What we'd like to do is have that info moved to SharePoint and have a 2-way sync with Active Directory so SharePoint and Active Directory are both kept up-to-date and we don't have to use the Outlook Public Folder anymore.

Any help would be great with this.  We are currently on Exchange 2010 and SharePoint 2010.
