RE: Basic SASL setup instructions

For what it's worth, I've had no trouble connecting with Outlook 98. It
connects successfully to slapd with or without SSL/TLS, and has no trouble
searching for names and such. It doesn't seem to know about SASL, and I too
am curious about what Microsoft means by Secure Password Authentication.

Note that Outlook behaves a little differently, you can enter a bind DN and
password in the configuration, so it just binds once, performs a search, and
then unbinds. Netscape binds anonymously to search for your bind DN (based
on email address, by default), then tries to rebind as you to perform the
desired search.
