How to enable LDAP in Exchange 2007?

I have a barracuda 300 series and it says that Exchange has an "accelerator" wherein is uses LDAP to verify an email address before sending the mail from the spam filter to the Exchange server.  However, I cannot find anything online or in documentation that talks about Exchange having it's own LDAP service.  Has anyone ever heard of this?  I know I can query my domain controller for LDAP but that won't help me because my DC won't know all the email aliases that exist on the Exchange server.  We have Exchange 2007 so I'm really not sure if it exists or if I'm just confused about the whole process.  Thanks so much.

Your DC's are LDAP servers...they can be used to query exchange....exchange simply extends the schema for AD objects....2007 is hugely integrated....you query AD and it will give you the results...you dont need to direct query exchange

Exchange 5.5 had its own LDAP database - Exchange 200x uses AD. All of the email address information is stored in AD, so just use one of those to query against.
