The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP, pronounced el-dap) is an industry-standard, on-the-wire protocol used to perform directory operations such as Read, Search, Add, and Remove. It is described in RFC 1777.
Microsoft Exchange Server incorporates this protocol into the Directory Service allowing LDAP compliant clients access to directory information. Microsoft Exchange Server only supports the Read functions as specified in the RFC. LDAP is typically used by third-party clients who are requesting directory information. None of the Microsoft Exchange Clients use LDAP to communicate with the Directory.

The information in this article applies to:
 
 - Microsoft Outlook 97
---------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SUMMARY
=======
 
Microsoft Outlook 97 does not support the Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol (LDAP) for client directory lookups.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a protocol for clients
to query and manage information in a Directory Service over a TCP
connection (port 389). The LDAP protocol was designed by University of
Michigan to provide access to the X.500 Directory while not incurring the
resource requirements of the Directory Access Protocol (DAP). This makes it
very suitable for use on the Internet.
 
Outlook is not a LDAP client and does not provide the ability to query
using LDAP. Active Directory is a Directory Service integrated with the
Windows NT Server operating system; it offers the hierarchical view,
extensibility, scalability, and distributed security required by all
customers. Microsoft provides support for LDAP in Active Directory and
enables it to integrate with the Internet. With this LDAP support,
customers can deploy Active Directory in a corporate computing environment
and interoperate with LDAP clients from multiple vendors.

Application Programming Interface (MAPI) services. To determine your

Microsoft Outlook you should see "Corporate" if you have the Corporate
Workgroup installation.
 
SUMMARY

Microsoft provides a service for use with Outlook 98 that allows you to
access directory servers using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP). LDAP is a directory service implementation that allows fast search
access to user information using the X.500 directory.
