Win 2k ADS as LDAP Server and OpenLDAP

This is some sort of interoperability question. Postfix (MTA) links
against the OpenLDAP libraries, so I thought this may be the place to

One of the basic problems of a mail relay in the DMZ is that this
relay never knows if "invalidaddress@mydomain.com" is actually valid
or invalid.

This is where local_recipient_maps comes into play. In theory,
local_recipient_maps would simply query the Win 2k ADS in the internal
network for "invalidaddress@mydomain.com" and make it's decision based
on that.

Did ANY of you do that before? Is it feasible? Can Postfix (the
openldap libraries) query an Win 2k ADS via LDAP at all?
