Setting up Evolution to query your Open LDAP server

This shouldn't really be very tricky, but if you're getting errors or no results, then it's probably because Evolution seems to require that you close it and restart before it commits the LDAP settings.

So, go to contacts. Right click in the left pane. Click "New Address Book" and choose LDAP. Enter your server details and login. the click on the "Details" and enter the search base. If the part of the tree you're querying lower in than the high level search base, ensure you choose "Sub" for search scope.

Click OK, exit Evolution and open it up again. It should prompt you for your password and start searching.

if you want autocompletion, then go to preferences and choose the new LDAP entry to be enabled for autocompletion.
