Re: retrieving entries

How do you think addressbooks in general are working?  Normally you 
specify some kind of top root (dc=com or so, applicable to your 
situation), and your client application has the entries defined which she 
is interested in...  e.g Outlook Express, Mozilla Addressbook, ...  and 
they take care for the download of entries.  All mailclients with LDAP-addressbooks work this way.
