E2K10 SP2: Thanks for the new custom attributes!

One of the nice new things that Microsoft introduced in Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 did not make much news. There are 30 new extension attributes (aka custom attributes). These are msExchExtensionAttribute16 -  msExchExtensionAttribute45.

Note, these are NOT editable from the Exchange Management Console nor the Set-Mailbox cmdlet,  But, they are flagged for Global Catalog replication, they are assigned a mapiID and they can be added to the details templates!

Cool post.
What is the difference between “Custom Attribute” and “Extension Custom Attribute”?
I need to grant rights to a service account to write to a custom field in AD.
How can I do this?
Thanks, Maelito

The "extension" attributes and the "custom" attributes are essentially the same thing.

Active Directory Users and Computers has a "delegation wizard" that you can use to delegate specific accounts very specific accounts to users or entire OUs. But, try it out in a test environment first.
