Where could I obtain a .schema definition?
"grep -i supportedCapabilities /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/*"
comes up with nothing.

As I wrote in the first post, I want to have Microsoft Outlook 2007
display a list of names in the addressbook when first accessed in the
same way that it does with ActiveDirectory/Exchange.

That is, before a customer searches for anything, she should already
see a list of names. Do your customer users see that?

Outlook does show contacts from the OpenLDAP addressbook when I
specifically search for them, so my general setup (attributes etc) seems
to be correct. But I want it to show all the contacts before any search is
done. The user can them pick the contacts from the list with a mouse and
send mail to them.

I cannot find any other words to explain myself. Anyone who has ever
seen the way the Outlook addressbook works with Exchange (and does not
work this way with OpenLDAP) should probably understand me.
