Netscape and Outlook

Hi - I'm trying to use OpenLDAP (initally) as a contact manager 
for Netscape 7, Mozilla 1.2, Outlook 200 and XP, and Outlook Express 
with the autocompletion feature. 

I just installed OpenLDAP 2.1.12 on a Solaris 8 Intel machine (all 
paths are avoiding Sun's LDAP software). Then followed the Quick Start 
guide to test the installation.

The command 

	ldapsearch -b '' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts 


	namingContexts: dc=virtualmachines,dc=com 


	ldapsearch -b 'dc=virtualmachines,dc=com' '(objectclass=*)' 

dumps everything as expected. 

The following schemas are being loaded 

	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/core.schema
	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/cosine.schema
	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/inetorgperson.schema
	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/mozillaOrgPerson.schema
	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/nis.schema
	include         /usr/openldap/etc/schema/java.schema

and the indices 

	index   objectClass     eq

Using the LDAP Browser\Editor v2.8.2, I can see the following 
directory structure 

			cn=David Gotz
			cn=Ken Simpson
			cn=Phil Schumaker

Each container in ou=People has with the following object classes: 

	objectClass	mozillaOrgPerson
	objectClass	inetOrgPerson
	objectClass	organizationalPerson
	objectClass	person
	objectClass	top

with the attribute 


The command 

	ldapsearch uid=ken mail 


	dn: cn=Ken Simpson,ou=People,dc=virtualmachines,dc=com
	mail: Ken_Simpson@VirtualMachines.COM

In Netscape 7, I setup the directory service as follows: 

	Name: VirtualMachines
	Hostname: planck 
	Base DN: dc=virtualmachines,dc=com
	Port number: 389 

and under the Advance tab, 

	Scope: subtree
	Search filter: (objectclass=*)

But when I try to use the autocompletion feature of Netscape 7 inside 
of mail, I get the following error 

	LDAP initialization problem

Any ideas on what is wrong? 

Any points to FAQs?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
