Office 365 - Thunderbird - How to fix problems with LDAP auto completion

This document explains how to fix Thunderbird if the LDAP auto completion is not working properly when composing a message. This document is relevant for Thunderbird 1.5 or later.

  1. Open Thunderbird. Click Tools -> Options (Mac users: Thunderbird -> Preferences).
  2. Click the Advanced Tab. On the General page click Config Editor.
  3. In the Filter field type: ldap_2
  4. Find the LDAP server name in the configuration list. This name will vary depending on what you named the LDAP server during setup.
  • In order to find the LDAP server name, look at the other ldap_2.servers.* entries for the server name.
  • In this example the server name is: ldap_2.servers.UWLdap

  • Find 'ldap_2.autoComplete.directoryServer' in the configuration list. Double-click the preference to modify it.
  • Type the LDAP server name in this field to set the default search directory. Click OK.
  • Exit and restart Thunderbird.
  • Thunderbird will now auto complete email adresses using the LDAP when composing email messages.
