You need to review schema requirements for each applications
and than choose a set of schema items which best fulfill the
needs of your use of these applications. Some applications,
especially, mail delivery agents (and mail clients) have very
specific requirements. These *should* be documented in the
application integration manual.

See the archives for schema requirements for Outlook (and Outlook
Express). (BTW, this would good answer for the FAQ... hint, hint).

It's best to use extend standard track schema. You can find descriptions
of standard track schema items in various RFCs. There are also a
number of web sites that provide decent reference (see archives or
FAQ for URL).
