Directory Search (Mac) - Configuring Apple Mail 10.9 for White Pages
This document explains how to configure the UW-Madison Directory (White Pages) search in Apple Mail and Contacts for OS X 10.9. In previous versions of OS X, the UW-Madison Directory (White Pages) search could be enabled through a setting in Apple Mail. In OS X 10.9, users must configure the directory search in Apple Contacts through the Internet Accounts tool in System Preferences.
First, open System Preferences by clicking on the Apple icon at the top-left of the screen and selecting System Preferences.
Next, click on Internet Accounts.
If another account is already selected in the left column, click the plus sign icon in the bottom-left corner of the left column to begin adding a new account.
Scroll to the bottom of the list of account types in the right column. Select Add Other Account.
Choose Add an LDAP account and click Create.
A blank form will open for you to add the LDAP account's configuration settings. To configure the UW-Madison Directory (White Pages), fill in the information as shown below. Once you have input the configuration information, click Create.
- Description: Directory Search
- Search base: dc=wisc, dc=edu
- Scope: Subtree
- Server Address: ldap.services.wisc.edu

Your newly-configured UW-Madison Directory (White Pages) account should appear in the left-hand column of the Internet Accounts window. The account details will appear in the right-hand column.
Test the directory configuration by opening Apple Mail, starting a new message, and typing the name or email address of a UW-Madison contact into the To: field. If the directory is configured correctly, their information should auto-complete as you type it.
