AD/ldap base search in address book in Outlook

Hi Experts,  I'm having a problem with pulling names/email from AD in Outlook using ldap address book.   With "Use Default" I get only a few names pulling through.  If I use dc=mycompany,dc=co,dc=uk then I get the same list.  I tried many examples from Microsoft but all gave the same error of dn syntax.    is there a way of getting just name and email addresses from all users in AD?   Incidently not all users are Exchange users some are POP.    Thanks in advance.

Do you want to export list of AD users to excel sheet or are you talking about the search name only option in global Address Book.

Hi, I'm trying to get a list of AD users and emails addresses to appear in an LDAP Address book in Outlook.   I have created the LDAP connection to the server but cannot get the search string right in the Outlook Search Base

You may try this

(&(mail=*)(|(mail=%s*)(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(givenName=%s*)(displayName=%s*)))

Then if all is fine then you can edit above and also edit the maximum number of entries and can customize as per your need

Hi
Thanks for the reply
I am getting "Invalid DN Syntax" from Outlook, should I be including my domain name or something first?
