Outlook? Don't know how Outlook works.

At my last "real" job I used Linux with Netscape 4.7.9, while all the
other 3,000 employees were forced to use Outlook for the firm's Exchange
servers (I was a Unix Field Engineer). At that time I didn't even know
how ldap worked. But I got Netscape's ldap thing to work just by playing
around, because I found out that ldap runs on port 389 from my
/etc/services. The stupid firm didn't use SSL and port 636, let alone
