LDAP Attributes Mapping in Mozilla Thunderbird
This section provides a tutorial example on how to search email addresses on a LDAP server and see its mapped attributes in Mozilla Thunderbird.
Once a LDAP server is configured in Mozilla Thunderbird, it will become an address book listed in the "Address Book" manager.
Here is what I did to access email addresses from a LDAP server in the "Address Book" manager.
1. Click "Address Book" in menu. The "Address Book" manager window displayed.
2. Click to open "Herong's LDAP" server listed in the left pane. And enter "herong" to search email addresses from the LDAP server. Matched results are listed.
3. Click to open firstname.lastname@example.org. Address details are displayed.
If are wondering how each address field is populated, here is the mapping table between LDAP attributes and address fields.
