Hi Lance, I'm not sure what you have for info but the LDAP attributes queried by Outlook/Express are as follows (taken from a packet dump): Outlook 2K / Outlook XP: commonName department display-name givenName mail organizationalUnitName organizationName physicalDeliveryOfficeName postalAddress roleOccupant surname telephoneNumber title Outlook Express: comment commonName conferenceInformation department display-name facsimileTelephoneNumber givenName homePhone homePostalAddress info initials IPPhone labeledURI mail Manager mobile OfficeFax OfficePager organizationalUnitName organizationName otherFacsimileTelephoneNumber otherMailbox otherPager pager physicalDeliveryOfficeName postalAddress postalCode Reports street streetAddress surname telephoneNumber title userCertificate;binary userSMIMECertificate;binary Note 1: Outlook 2K/XP does not query LDAP for a users' PKI certificate, Outlook express (WAB) does. Note 2: There isn't a way to extend the attributes that are looked up as it is hard coded in one of the DLL's :-(. Most of these types map onto existing LDAP schema attributes. I've assembled some links that might be of interest (they may get wrapped by outlook so cut-n-paste both lines): Discussion on Outlook attributes: http://www.openldap.org/faq/index.cgi?cmd=search&file=1&_submit=Search+f or&_search=outlook&_minMatches= An explanation that maps LDAP attributes onto address book attributes (incomplete): http://www.openldap.org/faq/index.cgi?_highlightWords=outlook&file=294 Schema for Exchange: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/exchser v/html/schmahlp_927n.asp Integrating LDAP/Netmeeting: http://www.freesoft.org/software/NetMeeting/ Plugins for Outlook that extend the LDAP lookup: http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/517.html Free LDAP plugin for Outlook: http://www.maxware.com/frames.htm?page=/products/mde/download.htm You could also look at the abook project on sourceforge, as this schema will work with Outlook/Netscape: http://ldap-abook.sourceforge.net Hope this helps. Rgds, Simon Thornton -----Original Message----- To: openldap-software@OpenLDAP.org Subject: Outlook and OpenLdap I have been reading and working with Ldap for a couple of weeks now and have come to a brick wall as far as my knowledge goes. What I need to do should be fairly simple but I just can't seem to grasp it and need a little shove to figure it out. The Task: I would like to create an LDAP directory to be used as a simple contact database. With basically the fields and structure of Outlook's Address Book. The key point here should be that I want to be able to add and delete users from a web interface (I can create that easily enough) but be able to use that same directory within Outlook (or Outlook Express)-- thus the use of the LDAP server (that and its superior ability with this type of task).
