Active Directory & LDAP Directory



  • 1. Possible to automatically delete all emails in current folder except...?
    I am using Outlook 2002 and was wondering if there is an app that I could use with it to help with this situation: Every day I receive an updated currency list and it goes into a folder in the Inbox called "Currency". I then have to delete any previous emails in that folder except the current one. Is it possible to have a program that will delete all the emails in that folder except the most recent one - even if it is not the same as the current date? Thanks

    After upgrading from Outlook 2002 to Outlook 2003, I'm no longer to sync offline with our corporate exchsrvr which is ver 5.5. I am connecting through a VPN, which previously worked fine. There are also other users that are unable to sync using Outlook 2003. Older versions of Outlook have no problems. What could be the problem?
  • 4. Portable email
    Can I install "Outlook" program on my mobile HDD (using USB case) and run on it? As I always travel to the branches of my company, I use the email program "Becky" inside my mobile HDD. I have set all the mail server in the program so whenever I need to check the email outside the office, only plug in the USB connector on any PC, run the Becky program on my mobile HDD, then I can get all the mail. It is quite convenience as all the mail are store in the mobile HDD with me. No need to bring the heavy notebook computor. But that Becky program have less function and sometime it cannot display the email using foreign language correctly. Can I install "Outlook" program on my mobile HDD and run on it?

Import a list of email from ATT and cannot get rid of Active Directory. When I compose a new message  and go to retrieve a address I receive the popup message "Can't contact LDAP Directory server (81)".  Getting on my nerves. Any idea's.  I tried everything and even Detect and Repair via the Help.

If you don't connect to a LDAP you can remove it by going into Tools > Email
Accounts > view or change existing directories or address books > highlight
the LDAP and remove.

1.Macintosh Outlook Express and LDAP and Active Directory

is it possible to have Outlook Express for the Macintosh (classic) use
Active Directory via LDAP for direectory services?

I had been using OE in IMAP mode with an Exchange 5.5 server.  using LDAP to
get to the Global Address book worked fine.

We recently switched to Exchange 2003, and a slew of new servers.  The admin
tells me that I must use authentication to get to the Global Addressbook,
and to use the Primary Domain COntroller as the LDAP server.

I get an authentication problem everytime.

From the research I have been to gather, this works in Entourage for Mac OS
X.  But thats not an option for me...

Does Entourage work because X supports Active Directory? and mac OS 9
doesn't?  Therefore I need to have the admin make the access to the global
addressbook anonymous? (not likely)

can anyone better explain this to me? and wht I might be able to do?

2.Outlook 2002 doesn't like Active Directory as LDAP

I can't seem to get Outlook 2002 (Office XP) to play 
nicely with the Active Directory LDAP Directory Server.

Here's the config:
User: administrator
Password: (set and hidden, verified correct)
Port: 389
SSL: Off
Timeout: 60 sec
Maximum Results: 100
Search Base: dc=mshome,dc=net

This was never a problem in Outlook Express 6. The only 
thing different in configurations were that in OE6 I 
chose the Secure Password Authentication (SPA) when 
logging into Active Directory. This option, however, 
seems not to be in Outlook 2002 -- a more sophisticated 

Wondering why? Anybody had this problem or propose a 


3.Using LDAP to access active directory distribution lists

I have setup Outlook to access active directory through 
LDAP.  I can view contacts fine.  From Outlook, I can't 
see and distribution lists/groups that I created in 
Active Directory. Only the contacts show up when I search 
the address book using LDAP.  I need the groups to be 
there as well. Any thoughts?

 (I do not use or want to use Exchange server).

Outlook 2003 users seems to be missing addresses from Active Directory/LDAP...

Outlook 2000 users can see all addresses

5.Setting up LDAP addressbook using Active Directory

We are moving to a linux based Email system with IMAP 
only and will be using Outlook 2002 on a windows XP 
desktop. Outlook will be configured using a PRF file with 
mail server and LDAP addressbook settings. Our LDAP 
addressbook will be our Active Directory.

The problems that we have are -

1) If we do not supply a userid and password (anonymous 
access) when we access to Active Directory, Outlook 
returns an unsorted list of users and groups. Ideally we 
would like this fixed. (either Outlook or Active 
Directory reconfiguration)

2) If we use the users Id and password to access the AD 
using LDAP all works well until the user changes their 
password and the addressbook lookup breaks.

3) So our solution so far is to use a generic userid for 
the AD lookup, if this userid does not have a password 
Outlook will prompt the user at startup to supply one 
(EVERY time) so we need to automatically give it a 
password. The other problem is that the addressbook 
section of the PRF file does not allow for a password 
entry. Any ideas here on how to automatically set the 
addressbook password?
- Tried putting entries directly into the registry (no 
good, it is encrypted, in a randomly named key)
- Tried using a Vbscript and sendkeys, but this is not 
reliable (does not work every time)
- PRF file does not support a password entry for LDAP 
address books
- Getting the user to type this password in requires them 
to both know the password in advance AND get it typed in
