General LDAP Configuration
The LDAP password has to be set before you will be able to use LDAP from a desktop client. Mailbox account LDAP passwords can be set in the Manager on the mailbox management page. Choose LDAP Password in the Action select box to set a mailbox LDAP password. Choose Account -> LDAP Password to set the account LDAP password.

Each account has an account address book and a personal address book for each mailbox account in the account. Both address books are visible in the IMP4 web clients and in the LDAP only Squirrelmail web client on the beta test site. Personal address books are visible in the IMP4 and Squirrelmail clients on the production site and the beta site.

Personal address books are read/write in the IMP4 and Squirrelmail clients. Mailbox accounts configured for full management access have read/write access to the account book in the IMP4 clients and the LDAP only Squirrelmail client on the beta site. Mailbox accounts not configured for full management acess have read-only access to the account book. Desktop email clients implement read-only access to LDAP directories.

No Windows email client will update or write to an LDAP directory.
LDAP will not magically sync address books.
No Windows email client will display the contents of an LDAP directory.
LDAP directories are only searchable by Windows email clients.
Thunderbird has the option to download an LDAP directory but Thunderbird attempts an anonymous bind to do the download and that will not work.
