Can I create a lookup in Access to Active Directory like in SharePoint does for contact information?

I have a form in Access that creates user information in my database.  Can I create a table or form in Access that will look in Active Directory to populate:

LoginID
First
Last
Phone
Email

The function will act the same as when you click on the address book picture in SharePoint it automatically searches the active directory to pull in Login Information?

You can find sample here:

For filtering you can use current user's login name:
Environ("username"). You can also take domain from environ:
Environ("userdomain")

I don't actually need to create new exchange accounts, the link you sent me does this.
What I need is to populate a table pulling information from Active Directory.

Try this sub (extracted from link above):
Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Public Const adOpenStatic     As Integer = 3
Public Const adLockReadOnly   As Integer = 1
Public Const adCmdUnspecified As Integer = -1


Sub GetADUserInfo()
Dim rs As Object
Dim StrSQL As String

    Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    StrSQL = "SELECT userPrincipalName, name, sAMAccountName, department, streetAddress, mail, telephoneNumber, otherTelephone " & _
             "FROM 'LDAP://DC=yourDomain,DC=local'" & _            ' Correct this line according to your domain
             "WHERE objectClass='user' AND objectCategory='Person' AND sAMAccountName = '" & Environ$("username") & "'"
    
    rs.Open StrSQL, "Provider=ADSDSOObject;", adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly, adCmdUnspecified
    If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
        Debug.Print rs!sAMAccountName, rs!mail, rs!Name
    End If
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
End Sub
