Perhaps I have a pie in the sky idea of how to accomplish this task as there are many options...  (List boxes, etc)  However I'm developing we website in VB.Net for a Co project and am hoping to replicate the same LDAP name search seen in Outlook when you hit Ctrl+K in any of the address boxes after typing a partial name.  This would accomplish a few things for my project...  First and foremost allowing multiple workflow trustee's to be identified at once (separated by colons), and second streamline the form.  I was wondering if anyone knew of an already coded solution to do something like this?  Thanks!

as far as I know the email / name search in outlook is based on exchange contact/ distribution lists publishing services
to read from Ldap or AD you can look for .net AD library that comes with samples
if you want to work with exchange you can use EWS,
