Querying an LDAP Server

Mutt's query command (Q, pressed at any prompt, or control-T after you've input a couple of characters to search for) is powerful and impressive. To query an LDAP server, first download the script (find a link to it at the mutt wiki) and save it to someplace where you can execute files (I saved it to ~/bin). You need to update just four lines in the perl script, and you are good to go. Increasingly, this is how I deal with addresses.5
