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?
Microsoft Access

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.
