I want to use multiple LDAP servers for email list purposes. How do I do this?

Posted

I have two separate domains and I want to use their LDAP connections to pull the emails of all employees. I currently have it where I can switch the server through the settings but I want to be able to use both simultaneous. Can this be done? Does it involve further configuration out side the software? Is it beyond the capabilities of the software?

This extension seems to do allow exactly that:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/multi-ldap/

I wonder if it will still work with TB 60.

I am sorry, I hadn't noticed Last Updated: Dec. 6, 2010 !

In the comments for the extension a more recent fork is mentioned:

https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/thunderbird/addon/multildap2/

I also found the extension technical documentation:

http://adullact.net/plugins/mediawiki/wiki/milimail/index.php/Multi-LDAP_Technical_Documentation

Depending on your needs, interest and budget, you may consider either asking the original author, the fork author and/or the TB Enterprise mailing list if there is enough interest to update the extension for Thunderbird.

I've also contacted Adullact about this, will relay here any information I get from them.

I appreciate the support. We are looking for a free way or minimal monetary input. I looked at the multildap2 extension but it is also not for our version.

Thanks for clarifying. You can still contact the original authors and propose to help with testing, documentation, translation, etc. Even a small donation (if accepted/possible) can make a difference.

I havent' heard back from them yet, will come back here if/when I do.
