Email Issues

Auto completion of Lund University employees

This is actually much simpler than it sounds. Our university has actually already fixed this for us. They just forgot to tell us about it. :) Now what you need to do is to tell your email client where to look for people. This is done by setting up an LDAP Address book. The settings you need to input are listed below.

  • Host:
  • Port: 389
  • Seach base: dc=lu,dc=se

Ok I realize that this might not be sufficient information for all of you out there, so let's do an example with Evolution.

  • Fire up Evolution.
  • Click on the Contacts bar in the bottom left of your screen.
  • Create a new Address book from the Menu: File->New->Address book
  • From the scroll list choose "On LDAP servers" and select a name for it e.g. "Lund".
  • At the server textbox you write "".
  • Make sure that you do not use secure connection.
  • Port should be 389, and login should be anonymously.
  • Write "dc=lu,dc=se" in the Search base field.
  • Leave filter empty.
  • Choose Sub in Search scope.

That's it my friends!
