Active Directory® Service Interfaces (ADSI) abstract the capabilities of directory services from different network providers to present a single set of directory service interfaces for managing network resources. Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 messaging and collaboration applications can use ADSI to look up and modify user and group information stored in Microsoft Active Directory®. For more information about ADSI, see the MSDN® Active Directory Service Interfaces Web site.
