CFLDAP and MS Exchange 5.5 - Global Contacts

I made a LDAP connection with CF to our Exchange 5.5.
Now when I query I only get the internal addresses.
I want to get the Global Contacts out of the Public Folder.
Can anyone help me on this ?
I believe it has to do with the object names, but then again when I change the names, I don't get the result that I want.
My coding :
CFLDAP
 ACTION="QUERY"
 ATTRIBUTES="mail, Address, Company, Proxy-Adresses"
 SERVER="servername"
 NAME="EmailList"
 START=""
 SCOPE="SUBTREE">
CFOUTPUT QUERY="EmailList">
#mail# - #Address# - #Company#

#Proxy_Adresses#

/CFOUTPUT>

Sorry, but that is impossible. In Exchange, LDAP is only supported for accessing the directory tree. Public Folders are not part of the directory tree and are therefore inaccessible. Dont blame me, blame MS...
 
See these links for confirmation:

That said, there are ways to do it, but it involves using COM components (the same ones used by the Outlook Web Access stuff) and is quite a bit more complicated than using LDAP. If you want to try this just go digging in the source of your Outlook Web Access site and you should be able to piece it together. I warn you it aint easy.

Thanks Heath for the answer, any good suggestions on working with COM, I tried that before also.
Could you tell me what CLASS I am looking for here and what name of COM-object ?
