    The Address Book is actually Domain Information, so the user will require permissions in the domain to modify that information.
    Another option is to delegate specific permissions in the domain to modify objects.

    Your best option is to find a tool to do that, rather than allowing them to use ADUC.

    Distribution Group membership etc is also a Domain Setting, with just the mail enabling part requiring Exchange permissions.
