Rainmail Server User Guide
Address book - Outlook

Rainmail Server, by default, exposes Global Address book using LDAP. However, if you are using Rainmail Server - Enterprise Edition, Global Address book is also exposed using SyncML. SyncML is more powerful than LDAP and if you have the Rainmail Server - Enterprise Edition, it is recommended that you skip this part and use SyncML to configure Outlook. 

The following steps are given for configuring Global Address book (using LDAP) on Microsoft Outlook 2013 running on a Windows 8 Operating System.
