A typical example we had for this need was a recent rollout where there were a number of MAC's that were too underpowered to use the Outlook client for MAC's. It was decided to use their existing IMAP client, which used an LDAP address book. LDAP works fine by default with Exchange 2000, however, it is only enabled to be used by authenticating clients. Obviously, the MAC clients do not authenticate to Active Directory. Active Directory supports LDAP searches through Port 389 (Local domain), and Port 3268 (Global Catalogue, all domains in the forest), so if you are restricting access to these ports through an internal firewall (or wish external access), you will need to open these ports up.
