Re: [Evolution] LDAP Autocompletion/Addressbook Sources

Title: Re: [Evolution] LDAP Autocompletion/Addressbook Sources

So far as I know, if you have connector, you can't use an LDAP source for address autocompletion.  Without connector, the manual edit of config.xmldb does work.  With connector, it doesn't work, and what is more irritating is that if your exchange server also has a global address list, it won't use that for autocompletion either.

My "workaround" is to use something like ldap_search to download the server's contents to a local.ldif file and then import that into local contacts, which is usable for autocompletion.

Other than that, I've been using connector since it first came out, and I think it is a superb product - especially now that a lot of the early teething troubles have been fixed.

I'd love to have address completion. 

Honestly, I'd like to get Connector, but I'd like to talk to someone
that has it first to try to get a feel for how good/bad it is.
