The LDAP bind in the Mozilla Address Book does not accept a password.  For
corporate/workgroup internal whitepages this is a desirable feature.  A simple
way to include a password for LDAP binding would be to enable it to be entered
in Preferences.  A smoother way would be to attempt to bind 1) w/o password,
then 2) with the password(s) supplied by the user for her email account(s). 
Especially when the user is prompted initially for a password with IMAP
accounts, this would enable the user to access internal white-pages seamlessly,
in a well-designed LDAP environment.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

LDAP bind does accept a password; it simply prompts for it in a wallet-based
prompt, and does not allow it to be entered in the preferences.
