Improving Your Outlook

Elizabeth works for a large university system that has a hodge-podge of mail systems, often a different one for each department or campus. The IT department is working on consolidating multiple email systems, but until all the systems are merged, Elizabeth has to deal many different mail servers and directories. Most of the mail servers use LDAP for directory services, but a few are Exchange Servers with global address lists.

Outlook limits you to one Exchange Server in a profile, which means that Elizabeth can't use the global address books on the other Exchange Servers, so she set up LDAP services to access those directories. Now she can email colleagues on the other Exchange Servers just as easily as she can email anyone on her Exchange Server. Although Elizabeth could have created contact entries in her own Contacts folder for the people she needs to email in other departments, using LDAP gives her dynamic access to the most up-to-date and complete directories.
