My ultimate goal is to import / be able to access all of the information contained in my Active Directory.  I just recently setup a new windows 2000 Domain controller and I am experiencing a lot of difficulty accessing the LDAP from an MS Outlook client.  I've added the Microsoft LDAP directory service to my Outlook client and I've tried entering the full domain name (server name.doamin name) the server name, the DNS name as it is show DNS records (_ldap._tcp.domain name.....etc. you know the SVR record that I am referring to) among other name variations, yet I can't seem to access anny of the information.  IIS is running, DNS is the native 2000 DNS service, I'm running outlook 2000 on an XP pro O/S, it is set to port 389.  By default what should be the process to perform this task.  I hope that I am being clear enough.

I'm new to this forum.  What is the standard for allocating points solutions?

MS has a tool for exporting to delimited files that works well: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/server/help/default.asp?url=/windows2000/en/server/help/sag_ad_ldif_csv.htm

As far as allocating points, the more points the better attention your question will get.  50 is about the minimum, I have seen 500 point questions that offer an additional 500 points for quick and thorough response.  Most experts do not care for a grade of C, so make sure you justify it when giving one out.

you can also read up on this in the Community Support area under New to EE.  Welcome, MSGeek.

It was my understanding that the IIS service published the LDAP so that you could reference the Active Directory with any mail client in order to obtain user information such as email address and other contact information.

That is a good article.  I was looking at it the other day. But do you know what the requirements on the server-side would be to make this work?  What would be the name of the server that you put in the "server name" field.  Are there any special DNS requirements?

No special requirements other than having the appropriate rights to the server.  I know there is a KB that talks about easing permissions for anonymous authentication to LDAP, but I am big on security.  Server field would be servername.domain.com
