Load ethereal on your PC. (Very kool packet sniffer)
Run your query in Outlook (Ctrl+K ?).
Look at the traffic. You should see an LDAP search request and the names
of all fields being requested. Then you should see the returned fields.
I would do this for you but using Evo, not much point.
If you get it all to work, post the full set to slug for other archive
searchers to find later.
