 Solution: LDAP and Outlook 98/2000

Microsoft's Outlook 98 LDAP plugin:

We both were not able to solve this problem with the
LDAP plugin for Outlook 98 from Microsoft, but I found
a great web page, were several alternative tools are listed:

And Jeremy found out that the Messageware LDAP Address
Book Version 3.0 from NEXOR does a really good job
providing LDAP services - even for OL '97 users!
You can download this tool for free from the NEXOR
website (
