Use Address Book with Microsoft Exchange using LDAP
Authored by: hamarkus on Apr 30, '08 12:32:02PM

Does Outlook (on Windows) show all entries without searching? I never used Outlook (the closest I got was looking over my colleagues' shoulders using it), and for me searching a (web) server always meat typing in a search term.
(Just trying to understand why some people expect to see a list and others do not.)

Use Address Book with Microsoft Exchange using LDAP

Exactly - it does. Outlook shows you a list of all entries is has - no need to enter a search term.
So that's the behavior I was expecting in Address Book, because I was used to Outlook on a PC.

I was subjected to using Outlook on windows (and windows itself) for many years before I moved to a new job where they don't force me to use windows. I highly recommend making such a move, if it is possible for your individual circumstances - it's been wonderful not to have to use windows at work any longer.
I told the old company in my exit interview that one part of why I was leaving was that I was sick of being forced to use windows, and I told the new company in the interview that I wanted to work on an iMac, and they were fine with that.
