- The "simple search" preference (under Advanced) limits the search to only cn and mail attributes. It's not needed for ClickMail. In fact, this setting can be confusing to users, because a last name search won't work unless the user enters an asterisk in front of the name.
- On the left side of the Outlook Express window, choose the ClickMail directory.
- 2. In the directory area, enter a full name or beginning of a name in the Search for Name field.
- The Search for Name field actually searches numerous attributes for values that begin with what the person enters. To search for a substring anywhere in attributes, enter a leading asterisk ("*Smith") .Outlook displays the separate first and last name attributes rather than common name.
- Click the Find button. A list of names is returned.
- To address a message, select a name in the list, then click the Mail to: button (along the top of the window). This opens a message to that person. Discard the message when you're done.
- To keep entries in your contacts book, drag them to the contacts icon at left.

Fields supported by Outlook in contact view:
- In some cases, more than one attribute maps to the same field. If a server returns results with attributes that map to the same field in the contact entry, Outlook uses the attribute listed first above. Not all fields in Contact Manager have corresponding ClickMail/LDAP attributes.
