This is not a direct answer but an alternative.
If your Exchange server administrator has opened, or is willing to open, 
the LDAP service, it may be easier to leverage existing Python code using 
OpenLDAP to achieve the same thing.
I have tested the package from and it is pretty much 
push-button ; as a bonus it doesn't use the Python win32 COM extensions so 
you can run it on whatever you please...
