Great !

What would be very cool is to send us a quick report or 'howto' which 
can be added to our wiki. This could be very helpfull for the few person 
who are using Outlook (500 hundred millions ? ;)

The 1.5.2 version brings a very interesting feature : the server can 
self build a certificate, instead on depending on an admin to generate a 
certificate, sign it, store it in a keystore... Now, the firt time you 
try to connect to the server using LDAPS, if the server does not have a 
certificate, it will generate one, stores it into the DIT, and use it to 
establish the connexion. If needed, you can still setup your own 
certificate (for instance, if you bought one)

Of course, this is not yet doccumented ;)

Regarding the code, I would let Alex validate it.

Thanks !
