The above answer is correct. Here is more:
LDAP, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is an Internet protocol that email programs use to look up contact information from a server, such as ClickMail Central Directory.
LDAP was designed at the University of Michigan to adapt a complex enterprise directory system (called X.500) to the modern Internet. A directory server runs on a host computer on the Internet, and various client
programs that understand the protocol can log into the serverand look up entries. X.500 is too complex to support on desktops and over the Internet, so LDAP was created to provide this service "for the rest of us." LDAP servers exist at three levels: There are big public servers such as BigFoot and Infospace,organizational servers at universities and corporations, and little LDAP servers for workgroups.
