Outlook 2003 LDAP Address Book Configuration

I have been playing arround to configure LDAP Address Book on Outlook 2003 againts Sun Java Directory Server.

Here step by step to configure:

  1. Open Tools -> E-mail Accounts -> Add a new directory or … -> Internet Directory Service (LDAP)
  2. Put the server name and click More Settings… button
  3. Rename display name (optional)
  4. Click Search tab
  5. Put Search base: ou=People,o=domain, o=isp 

PS: If your Directory Server requires authentication so put your user name as uid=username,ou=People,o=domain,o=isp and your password as well.

Have a nice shoot…!
