Re: Basic SASL setup instructions

Have you tried using just the Address Book in Netscape? I've never had
any success with ldaps:// in Netscape... and unfortunately, LDAP doesn't
seem to be present in Mozilla yet ;(

The Address Book should support at minimum, SSL with client auth. I'm
fairly certain it should support the use of client certs as well....
