    Question [SOLVED] GAL on ZCS 6.0.5 FOSS and Outlook

    Hi,

    My client has Microsoft Outlook 2003 as mail client and using Zimbra Mail Server 64 bit on SLES 11 FOSS Edition as mail server.

    I'm a little bit curious about accessing Zimbra GAL with Outlook. I follows the tutorial on Mail Client LDAP Configuration - Zimbra :: Wiki but GAL has not display on Outlook.

    Do I need Outlook connector only for accessing Zimbra GAL or is this possible to use the Zimbra FOSS Edition with Outlook as client (using SMTP, POP3 and access GAL as Address Book)

    I do search on this forum and found on some thread that some people also get problem to access GAL on Zimbra 6.0.5 with Outlook.

    Note : Thunderbird client has no problem accessing Zimbra GAL using their LDAP Address Book configuration.
    Best Regards

    Any suggestion will be really appreciated, or do I the only one have trouble accessing GAL with Outlook without ZCO? :-)

    Note : Yes, I have a choice to replace Outlook with Thunderbird but the above answer will much appreciated.

    Finally, solving this problem by providing user name with my bind dn. I'm currently using Zimbra Mail Server 6.0.5 64 bit on SLES 11 and integrated it with Samba PDC.

    Outlook has finally read Zimbra GAL by using :

    Code:
    uid=zmposixroot,cn=appaccts,cn=zimbra
    as user name and then using zmposixroot password as user password. If you haven't integrating Zimbra with Samba PDC, you may also (sorry, haven't tested, please CMIIW) using user id :

    Code:
    uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
    with password from this command :
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password






    Tested with Microsoft Outlook 2003
    Best Regards

    does it also auto-complete emails/names while typing?
    Or just when you press CTRL+K?

    Hello,

    I have the same issue in Thunderbird Addressbook, but I entered User account information like Bind DN:

    uid=user1,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org

    and enter user password of Zimbra server. (LDAP)

    and addressbook show me list of users email addresses. But I have question.

    It is possible to configure Zimbra Server to dispaly in client like Thunderbird Addressbook not account information ex.: user1@example.org but email address whitch is entered in field "Canonical address: " ex.: very.good.user@example.org ?
    Or can show alias for that account in Addressbook ?
