Well I finally have my 1 MAC user on IMAP to the Exchange server, now how to get him to be able to view the GAL? He's using AppleMail, and it's asking for a port # to connect to, but I can't find that setting in System Manager. Can someone lend a clue?

My thanks!

First, you have to point Entourage to the LDAP server in the directory tab of the account settings window (you can use the IP or the name if you have DNS set up correctly)
Second, Entourage won't let you "browse" through the GAL, it will only allow a query. To query the GAL, open entourage, select Tools\directory services. In the folder view verify that your exchange acct name is selected then enter a name in the search field and click find. If you search for "Richard" it will give you all of the "Richards" in the GAL and you can select the appropriate person from there.

In order to browse the contents of the GAL (or GCL), you must be connecting to a Windows 2003 domain controller's LDAP service.  Entourage utilizes an enhancement to Windows Server's LDAP support known as Virtual List Views.  If Entourage connects to a Windows 2000 domain controller, you will be able to search the contents of your GAL, but not browse.
