Outlook 2010

Is it possible for users to update their own contact and organizaton information (e.g. their office and cell phone numbers, office, title, etc)? Just about everyone in the company uses Outlook 2010.
A few months ago I set up two admin assistants to be able to update the data thru ECP but they seem to have lost interest in the project. I can do it thru Active Directory, but I don't want to; I just think it would be easier if the new hires do their own once they get settled in. I tried to find something on the internet and poked around in Outlook 2010 and 2007 but couldn't find anything.
Simple question - is it possible?
If it is - how?

thanks in advance.

I have personally tried exploring this option, but no luck.

Only option is 3rd party tool - http://www.directory-update.com/

Seems like a design flaw; just would be so much more efficient if everyone could update their own information. I can understand that MS would shy away from the permissions issues as the fields are ultimately stored in Active Directory - but since there are 3rd party tools that do it - someone figured out how to get around the permissions issue.

Thanks for confirming it; saves time fruitlessly searching.
