AHA!   That worked.  I had Outlook reading just fine, but Netscape 
wouldn't do it.  This has moved a long way in the right directly.  Now 
the only trouble I am having is with some invalid Mozilla atributes in 
my ldif file, most second emails and the like.  Here is an example:

ldap_add: Object class violation (65)
         additional info: attribute 'mozillaSecondemail' not allowed

This is defined in the schema, so I am not sure why it is failing ... is 
there a better schema to use somewhere?

Thanks in advance,
