First post here !

I've successfully got MS Entourage working with our Exchange Server here at work. However, I am having problems using Mail 3.1 working with the Exchange Server. For some reason, auto complete of LDAP addresses is not working. My settings are as follows for Entourage:

" User ID is users domain user name, password is domain password and domain is "ourcompany.co.uk"

Then I entered ourcompanyexch03name.co.uk in Exchange server box.
And domain1.ourcompany.co.uk in the LDAP server box "

This all works fine in Entourage but Mail will not Automatically complete addresses.

Any ideas??

    Yeah, I actually got mine to work by going into the Address Book preferences. I entered our LDAP server under the LDAP tab and now Mail is auto-completing like a pro!

    Also, be sure to go into Mail preferences and under the "composing" pane check "Automatically complete addresses" and there's a button there to "Configure LDAP"

    I can only confirm that I have the same problem, both in Mail and Address book. It works in Entourage and it used to work in Tiger (at least in the last versions).

    When using Address book I get the following console messages when I entered "boivie" as search string:

    This will work best if you have Active Directory properly configured in Directory Utility (for search path certainly).

    Then searching the GAL will "automatically" work in both Mail and in Address Book.
