Subject Re: Thunderbird and ADS
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2007 04:34:12 GMT
Just to rule out a basic possibility... Thunderbird doesn't, by default, 
query an LDAP server unless you start typing something in the search 
box.  Can you type something in the search box and see if it finds 
anything?  It could take a couple of characters, I can't remember what 
the fewest is, but I definitely remember Thunderbird having this 
design.  I guess the thinking is that it shouldn't auto-search an LDAP 
server because the LDAP addressbook could contain thousands of 
addresses, overwhelming the client in both bandwidth and sheer volume of 
unnecessary information.

Hope this helps.
