RE: [Evolution] Active Directory

PMFJI, but isn't AD just a full-(over)blown implementation of LDAP?

Subject: Re: [Evolution] Active Directory

Pardon my being a whiner but doesn't this make Evolution as 
an Exchange replacement rather broken. I puchased Evolution 
under the pretense that I could replace all major 
functionality. Being able to query to whom in corporate the 
message will be going to is rather critical in nature.

Now that I am done ranting: Is it (or has someone) build a 
local OpenLDAP server and connection from it to AD, then 
pointed Evolution to the local Open LDAP service for name 
lookup? Based on my limited RTFM it seems this not only can 
be done but is the only route to get Linux to speak to AD (ie 
not just modifications to a client but having to impliment 
the full server on each host). 

Input greatly apreaciated.

Evolution doesn't support Active Directory, it only supports LDAP

know very little about - same for most every Evolution hacker).

How do I get Evolution to talk to active directory for

for migration 
from Outlook to Evolution. It is a 'show stopper' though

type worth a darn.

Pointing me to documentation is perfectly fine. I googled 
around and 
hit only stuff from RH 6.2 erra.
