    Using LDAP and Outlook (Outlook ???)

    one of our members in Guatemala is have a problem with using our LDAP to find an address. He admits it may be "pilot" error

    He writes:
    > Here is the problem I am having in Outlook, when I am trying to find an
    > email address using the LDAP directory:
    > 1. I type the name for which I am searching into the FIND CONTACT

    TIA for your help.

    A couple of questions:
    1. What happens if he just presses the To... button on a new email? It should bring up the Address Book window of available contacts and available contact lists, in which he can search. Alternatively, having got the window with the relevant contact as he does now, chosing File-New message should create a new email with that contact in the To field.
    2. What are the error messages he gets?
