    the Zimbra Connector for Outlook provides access to the Zimbra GAL (even offline).

    Default Access GAL from outlook without outlook connector.

    Thanks fo reply, but I'm using zimbra Community Edition.
    I understood that outlook connector only works with zimbra Network Edition, but pherphas I'm wrong...
    I also test outlook connector but outlook2003 crash when I access zimbra GAL...
    My question is:
    Is ti possible to access GAL from outlook using LDAP client support in Outlook 2003?
    Does anyone to it? how?
    Sorry but I'm a bit confusing about

    yes, the connector is network only. open a support case with our support team and send us a core dump, we can fix the crash for you right away.

    you can setup the outlook ldap address book to point at zimbra. add the ldap address book and point it at your zimbra server. of course, it wont work offline. also, you wont be able to browse the gal, you must search.

    in outlook we need to add directory service (LDAP) settings.

    these are my settings :

    Server Name : my.zimbra.com
    Logon information : uncheck

    More settings
    Display name : my.zimbra.com
    Connection details :
    Port P: 389
    Use SLL : unchecked

    Search
    Server settings :
    search timeout : 60
    specify number of entries... : 500

    Search base
    Custom : uid=*,ou=people,dc=zimbra,dc=com



    And then i search name in my address book...
    it said : No such object. Possibly your specified Search Base is invalid.

    How can i make it right?

    thanks

    It's been a long time since I've used / configured Outlook with the Zimbra GAL (LDAP), but I just checked my settings and I have the "Search base" field blank. Tried a search and it seems to work OK.
