      hi

      thanks for the url..

      i tried both .. modifying registry etc..i stillget the error..


      my doubt is should i need to configure any additional configration in Exchange server in order to make LDAP directory to work in the client PCs.

      is that so? or by default the exchange 2003 has LDAP directory enabled ?

      pls advise..

        I have to ask, if you have Outlook, and Exchange 2003, then why are you using POP3? That should be the last client connection type used.

          hi..

          as the users forget to move the mails to local PST, they often face problems in sending and receiving.. thats why we have configured all with POP3... now they wan to have the address book available for them.. so thats why we are trying to configure the address book by LDAP.

            If you are going to have all users on PST files, then why bother with Exchange at all? You don't get any of the features that it provides to you. No shared calendar, shared inboxes, the GAL etc.

            You do know that having content in PST files can take up three times the space that the same message did in Exchange database, sometimes more. Having the items in a local PST file means you are using single instance storage. I send a 10mb email to 100 users, it uses 10mb in Exchange, it would use almost a 1gb in PST space spread over 100 machines. If you are then copying those files centrally for backup, you are using a lot more space.

              hi simon

              you are correct.. thing is that here the users find POP3 is convinent for them... and only issue is to have the directory address book..

              My doubt is by default is that created in Exchange server 2003? or should we need to configue it manually so that from outlook we will be able to access the directory address book using LDAP ..
