When you are using an LDAP client such as Outlook Express or LDP to query the Exchange Server directory, the query does not return the Company field. Exchange Server versions 5.0 and 5.5 do not return the Company field attribute of any recipients through LDAP.


No workaround exists at this time; this behavior is by design because this field is not specifically a requirement of Request for Comments (RFC) 1777. Exchange 2000 Server and Active Directory have added this functionality to the product.
