The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a protocol for accessing online directory services. It runs directly over TCP, and can be used to access a standalone LDAP directory service or to access a directory service that is back-ended by X.500.

trojans can use this - do you have up to date virus scanning?

Thanks Jimbo,seems like I certainly don't need Ldap,so how do I get rid of the damed window poping up telling me it can't be contacted,any ideas?

Godfather,virus protection up to date and did full scan just in case,I only installed Xp Pro a day ago so I guess these problems are part of the learning curve.

Check in Outlook Tools/Services
See if there is a Microsoft LDAP Directory Service
You should be able to safely delete it
