Outlook 2011 (Mac) Default Search Folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • This question is for Outlook 2011 (Mac)  Does anyone know how to change the default search folder from All Folders in the Contacts Search? I want to make the default folder my company's ldap directory. It works fine when you select it from the list, but it would be a lot more convenient if it searched ldap by default. I've searched online and haven't seen an answer to this.

    Thanks.

  • Just to save folks time when going through Google searches: this doesn't work the same way as the Windows versions of Outlook (2007, 2010, 2013) for address books. You can't make the LDAP directory the primary source "folder" for searches, or include it in any hierarchy of search folders; evidently, this can only be done with MS Exchange.
