LDAP in Mac Mail

  1. Go to the Mail menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then select Preferences.
  2. In Preferences select the Composing tab. Your window should look like this:
    *If your window doesn't have the Configure LDAP button, skip down to the Previous Versions of Mac Mail.
  3. Make sure the Automatically complete addresses box is checked. Then, click the Configure LDAP button. A new window should pop up.
  4. Hit the + button in order to add the Whitman LDAP server.
  5. Another window will pop up here like the one below, with several blank fields. Fill in the following:
    • Name: Whitman LDAP or whatever you would like to name the Whitman LDAP server.
    • Server: ldap.whitman.edu
    • Search Base: ou=People, dc=whitman, dc=edu

  6. Once completed, click Save
  7. Now you should be able to search for Whitman College names and email addresses within Mac Mail.
