If you purchased Office 2008 then it also came with Entourage.  Entourage is the Apple version of Outlook for Macs.

all you have to do is connect the Entourage client to your Exchange server and stop using Apple mail.  You will have far superior success.

Ah yes... Exchange support is not there :(  I may suggest that you upgrade to the full version.

Alternatively, you could try adding the address book via the Directory Utility Plugin.  This is located in the Utilities folder.

You will have to
  • join the Mac to AD
  • then you can add on the Search Policy>Contact
  • Set Search Path to custom
  • From the Dropdown menu add your AD infrastructure.

You will need to use the directory utility that is located in the utilities folder.

You should also gather information from your infrastructure:
  • Admin user that has permission to join machines
  • DC for connectivity
  • OU in which you want your Mac to reside
Once you have these in the utility
  • click on services
  • enable the AD plugin
  • dbl click on the ad plugin
  • enter your information to join AD

i tried this way

1) account preferences
2) join to server
3) given the domain controller name as ldap server
4) client id as "active directory user id"
5) admin user as "domain administrator"
6) admin password as domain password

but it gave the following error "the daemon encountered an error processing request 10002"

could you please let me know the right step

Make sure to use the FQDN when joining the Mac to AD.

Please post a screenshot of what your settings look like.

Snow Leopard has since dropped "Directory Utility" and integrated that functionality into System Preferences > Accounts, so kurajesh is in the correct place to configure his AD server.

The error on your screenshot looks like the authentication is failing - what happens when you authenticate to the domain as the root Administrator instead of the domain administrator?

Directory Utility has NOT been dropped. It is now located in /system/Library/Core Services

My language was poor, the user facing interface is accessed from System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options instead of the previous location of Applications > Utilities.  Apologies.
