How can I can assign nicknames to my contacts in Office Communicator 2007 R2?

When I right click on a contact, the Properties option is disabled. Is this due to some policy setting or something?

If the Properties option is greyed out, the administrator must have disabled it. Even if you could open the Properties, you probably won't be able to change the Display Name as the administrator may have locked them as well.

We use Office Communicator 2007 R2 in our company and when I right click on a contact and select the Properties, the relevant window is opened but I cannot change any of the entries. They are fetched from the address book in our Exchange Server, and we have no rights to change them.
