I think that Neill's asking how to get his Outlook client to query the
(Open?)ldap server at all. I don't know how Outlook clients work with
their old Exchange servers, but if they even have the *possibility*
(which I would rather tend to believe) of contacting normal ldap
servers, then "thuck it and thee" ith the betht way to go. Fiddle around
with port 389 on server IP numbers, or at the very worst, SSL (secure?
encrypted? etc) on port 636.
