Names and addresses in the Addressee objects are resolved against a list of LDAP servers or contact folder URLs, as listed by the Configuration CoClass. Default LDAP URLs can be read from the account information in Microsoft® Outlook® Express.


The following example uses an Addressee object to get the free/busy status of user12. It uses the LDAP protocol to get directory information from the exsvr3 server.

[Visual Basic]

Dim iAddr    As New CDO.Addressee
Dim freebusy As     String

iAddr.EmailAddress = ""
iAddr.CheckName ("LDAP://exsvr3")

' Get free/busy status in 30-minute intervals from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
freebusy = iAddr.GetFreeBusy(#7/8/1999 9:00:00 AM#, #7/8/1999 5:00:00 PM#, 30)
Debug.Print (freebusy)
