On the client's machine? Not a chance - PHP is server side.

Here is the scneario:

Application needs to send email to someone within the organization.
When they click on the to list, it will confirm the address is a valid
organization email address...Similar functionality to how Microsoft
OWA provides acess to lookup reciepients in Global Address book

OK. Where do you plan to get the list of valid addresses from?

Sounds like the address book is kept on the server.

Which still doesn't answer the implied question. Where is the address
list? On the user's machine or the server?

Not sure how reliable it is with MS Exchange (assuming that's what
your company's using), but you could use SMTP to check the mailbox
exists.

This should do the trick :-

Not only is this a spam site, checking to see if a mailbox exists with
SMTP is 100% UNreliable.

If you're running a Windows-based webserver and can access the ldap
server, you should be able to do it. You will need a COM object to
access the server; I don't know of one offhand, but have never had to
try it. Check the Microsoft developer's website - if there is one,
that's where it will be.

If you're running a Windows-based webserver and can access the ldap
server, you should be able to do it. You will need a COM object to
access the server; I don't know of one offhand, but have never had
to try it. Check the Microsoft developer's website - if there is
one, that's where it will be.

The Outlook GLOBAL address book is on a server (obviously..., its a
GLOBAL adress book.... not?),
it can be accessed via LDAP,
you dont want or need a COM object,
LDAP functions are available for PHP: http://nl3.php.net/ldap
