Using LDAP with iPhone/iPad

When creating an email, simply begin to type the recipient's name from your aACE Contacts. The iPhone/iPad will suggest matching entries for you to choose from.

When using the phone or address book, navigate to the list of contacts then click the left-arrow Groups button. Below your internal groups should be the LDAP group aACE Contacts.  Click to enter, then begin typing the person's name you need to look up.
