Identity Services provides limited support for the use of our LDAP service as a global address book for use within your e-mail client. Many modern e-mail clients — such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, Apple iPhone, & Mulberry — allow for the integration of directory services to facilitate e-mail address lookup.

Effective August 1st 2014 this service will no longer be accessible outside of the UCSB campus networks. For off-campus access to email addresses we recommend using the People Finder service. Alternately we recommend using the Campus VPN Service for remote access to UCSB campus resources.
Detailed Client Instructions

We've provided details for configuring the following clients:

Mozilla Thunderbird
Microsoft Outlook 2010
Apple Mail
Apple iPhone
Cyrusoft Mulberry

General Configuration

Alternately, you can use these generic settings to configure any other LDAP-enabled e-mail or address book service:

Name: UCSB Directory
Server: ldap.ucsb.edu
Port: 636
Use SSL: Yes
Search Base: o=UCSB
Search Scope: Subtree
Authentication: Simple
User Name: uid=[your ucsbnetid],ou=People,o=UCSB
Password: [your ucsbnetid password]

Note if the LDAP address look up in Thunderbird does not work, try this fix. In Preferences/Options, Advanced, Config Editor change security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha and security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha from true to false.

Contact to your e-mail service provider for additional support configuring your client.

Note that e-mail clients will only display a person's "UCSB E-Mail Address" as specified by the individual in the Directory Editor. They will not display an individual's address detail, such as Primary Department E-Mail, Secondary Department E-Mail, or Personal E-Mail Address.
