Hi,

In General a new address Book can be added manually in outlook 2010, you just need through: File > Info > Account Settings > Address Book > New.

Now, if you have a big number of Outlook clients where you want to add this new book, it will not be very funny to visit all the clients to do this operation again and again.

Hopefully, we can avoid this inconvenience by modifying the registry, for this i script can be used to this action for us.

The script is attached.

Thank you

Here’s the procedure on how to configure LDAP in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 as well as Microsoft Office Outlook 2013:

  • Open Microsoft Office Outlook then go to File, Account Settings, and then select “Add and remove accounts or change existing connection settings”.
  • In Account Settings window, go to “Address Books” tab then click New.
  • In Add New Account window, select “Internet Directory Service (LDAP)” followed by Next.
  • Still in Add New Account window under Directory Service (LDAP) Settings, type the LDAP URL in Server Name. For example, “ldap.services.wisc.edu” without double quotes. After that, click on More Settings.
  • After that a pop up dialog box will appear saying “You must restart Outlook for these changes to take effect.” Just click OK.
  • In Microsoft LDAP Directory window under Connection tab, enter the LDAP URL again under Display Name. Then go to Search tab.
  • In Microsoft LDAP Directory window under Search tab, type the values under Search Base in Custom field. For example, “dc=wisc,dc=edu” without double quotes then click OK.
  • You will be brought again to Directory Service (LDAP) Settings. Click Next and then Finish. Close the rest of the windows then restart Microsoft Office Outlook.
  • After restarting Microsoft Office Outlook, click Address Book.
  • In “Address Book: Contacts” window, click Tools then Options.
  • In Addressing window, select Custom then click on the LDAP URL below it to select then move it to the top of the list by clicking on the “up arrow” on the right.
  • In the same window under “When opening the address book, show this address list first”, select the LDAP URL under the pull-down menu then click OK. After that restart Microsoft Office Outlook again then you will now be able to search using the LDAP directory.
