I don't have any address book in my ldap server. But since every email
account that I assign to each uid embedded as a paramater for one, I just
have to configure email client's contact directory account (at least in
windows 7's winmail; but itu should work with thunderbird, outlook express
or even ms outlook - I tried them all) to point to the ldap server. But of
course it'll only work for local address. Each time I want to add an email
account for user, I use php ldap admin (no need to create ldif file and
ldapmodify that file). It's easy to install: just copy and extract its
source under your htdocs directory then configure it. Hope it can help you.
