This function, which is a component of the Mobile module, offers an LDAP Address Book that Outlook clients may connect to in order to access the GAL of the system, the user’s personal Address Books, and other Address Books set by the administrator.
As the point of connection for the Outlook clients, this service serves as the foundation of the LDAP Address Book functionality.
All mailbox services expose the service on port 8389, and it employs the TLS encryption standard.
