don't really have any pointers to any how to's

basically installed slapd, I have set aside a ou for my address book, I have a
script that pulls apart a outlook export of contacts and inserts into my ldap

for outlook there is a option to link to a ldap db, just give it your base dn
and a userid password (bind id)

for mutt have a google for mutt + ldap

I haven't recently used any other mail clients, but from what I remember they
all had option to point to a ldap server - usually the setup was provide the
ldap address - ldap:// and a base dn and a bind id and password, then
bobs your uncle.

I did used to use evolution this allowed me to edit my ldap entries
