LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over the network (TCP/IP).

A directory is a set of objects with similar attributes organized in a logical and hierarchical manner. The most common example is the telephone directory or, as in our case, the mail address directory.

Configuring the Elettra LDAP with a mail client program (i.e. Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.) you can discover an internal address simply digitizing some letters from his/her name or surname in the To, Cc or Bcc field. Here is the configuration for the Thunderbird program.
  • Open your Thundeibird. In the main page select "Account Settings" under the "Tools" menu.

  • Select "Composition & Addressing" and check the box "Use a different LDAP server". Press the "Edit Directories" button.

  • In the new window press "Add" and fill the following fields as shown.


When finished press the "OK" button on both the opened windows.

  • Finally, in the "Composition & Addressing" window, select the Elettra LDAP you have just created and press the "OK" button.
