Can I delegate contact management in Active Directory to a regular user
I want to give the receptionist the ability to manage the contact information for all users in Active Directory. Is is possible to give her limited access to AD to do only that?

Forgot to mention, still running Server 2003. Is that a 2008 feature?
it was in 2003 too, right click an an OU or domain and select delegate control to start the wizard

I found the delegation wizard. Looks pretty straight forward.
Last question I have is what tool would my user use to make changes to the contact info in a users AD account once I have the delegation set up? I don't want them to RDP to my AD server. Would they do it through the outlook address book? Would I install AD Users and Groups client on their system?
you can give them ADUC locally, if they are in one OU you can also give them a taskpad
