Exchange 2003 and Internal Employee Phone List

csimmons1324 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Currently our receptionist maintains a spreadsheet of all of our employees.  Within this spreasheet is the employees phone extension and mobile number (used for outside sales guys and other people that are on call).  Everytime the spreadsheet is updated the receptionist emails it out to all employees.

I would like to streamline this process a bit more and get this information stored in one cetnral location.  We are running Exchange 2003 and I was curious on the best approach to doing this.  Should this information be placed within Active Directory under the employees account so that the information can be seen within the address book in Outlook?  Should I create a public contact list under the public folders and hold this information there?  Or do you recommend another approach?
