Using the University LDAP Directory to find email addresses

These pages give details of where to configure the settings for LDAP in various mail programs. They are intended for use if you are configuring a personal machine.

  • If you are using public machines, for example a MCS or a departmental system, then expect that the settings have been made for you.
  • Hermes Webmail has access to the University LDAP Directory already configured.

Note. The University LDAP Directory is only available to mail clients on computers on the Cambridge network. If you are away from Cambridge and wish to use the University LDAP Directory then you will need to use the VPN service so that your computer appears to be on the Cambridge network. Alternatively you can use Hermes Webmail.

If your mail program is not mentioned in the menu then follow the generic guidelines

If you would like to check that your mail program is correctly set up for accessing Hermes, please see the pages on configuring a mail program for Hermes
